With the Red Devils struggling for goals, their former striker has come up with a suggestion that he believes could fire them to glory next season.

Robin van Persie has urged Manchester United to snap up Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani once his contract with the French giants expires at the end of this season.

Cavani, 32, will leave the Parc des Princes in the summer after he decided not to renew his existing contract with the Ligue 1 champions.

The Uruguayan goal-getter looked on the verge of leaving PSG last month amid reports that Atletico Madrid were interested in his services.

However, after PSG reportedly turned down two bids worth €11m and €16.5m for the 32-year-old from Atleti, the player will run down his contract in France before moving on in the summer.

The Dutchman suggested his former club to snap up Cavani while answering a question from one of his followers on his Twitter account on Monday.

During the question-answer session with his followers, the 1-time Premier League winner was asked who United should sign before the 2020/21 campaign.

Persie replied: ‘Edinson Cavani, brilliant player and available #GoalMachine’.

The Dutchman might have known that Cavani was one of five strikers which United tried, and failed, to bring in in the recently concluded January transfer window.

Marcus Rashford’s long-term injury forced manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to look for multiple options in the transfer market before bringing in former Watford striker Odion Ighalo from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua on a six-month deal.

Although Cavani hasn’t been able to secure a January move to La Liga, it is expected that he will ultimately join his forces with Diego Simeone’s men once the transfer window reopens in the summer.

Multiple reports over the past few weeks had claimed that the former Napoli striker had agreed terms with Atleti before PSG decided to pull the plug on his transfer.

It is speculated that the combative attacking style of the La Liga outfit combined with their pedigree in European football has convinced Cavani to choose them as his next destination.

The Uruguayan, who is the all-time top-scorer in the history of PSG with 198 goals, has found himself at the club’s fringes following the arrival of Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan last summer.

He has seen his importance fade at the club this season, with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Mauro Icardi all ahead of Cavani in the pecking order.
