Inter Milan target Man Utd striker Edinson Cavani to replace Alexis Sanchez amid transfer interest from LaLiga
INTER MILAN reportedly want Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani to replace ex-Red Devils flop Alexis Sanchez.
The Uruguay international, 35, moved to United on a free transfer in October 2020 and scored 17 goals in his first season.
After agreeing a new one-year deal, Cavani has struggled with injuries this term and looks set to depart when his contract expires in June.
Barcelona have been linked with a swoop for the ex-Paris Saint-Germain star.
Now Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Inter have joined the chase for the South American.
They acknowledge that the veteran has plenty of interest from elsewhere in LaLiga too.
But Inter are looking to bring in both an experienced forward as well as a younger talent to bolster their attack.
They want a physical presence in a similar style to Edin Dzeko – but are looking to do a deal without a transfer fee involved.
Sanchez is believed to be on his way out of the San Siro.
And the 33-year-old Chilean also has a number of admirers from Spain’s top-flight.
