    PSG PAST

    Cavani also spoke about his time at PSG, where he played alongside the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

    He added: "I’ve been lucky enough to have played alongside some great footballers. And when you do play with top players, it allows you to grow and improve.

    “I’ve always had that desire to improve and develop my game, and to take things from one player or another.

    "If I were to start listing each of their attributes, I reckon it would be an awfully long interview because they all have their own individual qualities.

    “You had a player like Zlatan who was highly competitive. He was always up for the fight and he really hated to lose. None of us like losing but he has always shown that even more than most, through his character and how he is.

    "I played with Ney also, as well as with Kylian. Everyone knows about Ney, don’t they… he has magic in his feet. Kylian has huge skill and technique as well as great pace. They are really top-class players.”

    CAV SOME OF THAT

    Edinson Cavani revealed he almost joined Manchester United in 2010.

    The Uruguayan was with Palermo at the time but ended up joining Napoli and then Paris Saint-Germain – before signing for United a decade later.

    Discussing it with Inside United, Cavani said: "Just imagine it! I can’t remember exactly what happened.

    "I do remember there was talk about one or two different teams, but hey, if I’d had that opportunity [to join United], I would have taken it, of course I would, without giving it a second thought.

    “I don’t remember definitively if that was the case.

    "But what I do remember is that I was due to travel to the World Cup in South Africa, and during that tournament, I had a conversation with Napoli, and well, told them if they had faith in me and wanted me to go there, trust and confidence are worth a lot to me, and so I made my decision and after Palermo I made the move to Napoli.”

    BRUNO THE MAIN MAN

    We heard earlier how Gary Neville thinks Manchester United are overly reliant on Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

    And the stats suggest he certainly has a point.

    Fernandes is both United's top goalscorer and has the most Premier League assists in the squad, too.

    SWING VOTE

    Marcos Rojo revealed he's spoken to Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani about joining him at Boca Juniors.

    Uruguay striker Cavani, 34, signed a one-year deal at Old Trafford last October after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

    But with doubts over his future, reports have linked him with a return to South America.

    And Rojo, who joined Boca last month, told TNT Sports: "I spoke with him (Cavani). I played a little with him. We were together for four or five months.

    "He is a great professional and if he reaches Argentine football, he would be a great star that would do Argentine football good."

    It comes after a pal of Rojo had allegedly said: “Marcos will do his bit to bring Cavani to Boca.”

    VAN DE BLEAK

    Donny van de Beek wants to quit Manchester United after a less than a year, according to reports.

    The Dutchman was recruited from Ajax for £35million last summer.

    But he has started just twice in the Premier League this season.

    According to the Star, has been left 'stunned' by his lack of action – and 'fears' that he has no future with the club.

    They also claim that he will demand 'showdown talks' with club chiefs before the end of the campaign, amid worries that he could miss out on Frank de Boer's Netherlands squad for Euro 2020.

    BREAK IT DOWN

    Gary Neville moaned Manchester United only have two creative midfielders… but rivals City have SIX.

    The Sky Sports pundit identified Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba as the Red Devils' primary players able to break down an opposition defence.

    He said: "You know how Man United are, they struggle to break down teams.

    "They've got to be better against teams in those deep blocks with ten men behind the ball. That's where the next stage is.

    "You need fantastic players. Look at Man City – (Kevin) De Bruyne, (Ilkay) Gundogan, (Riyad) Mahrez, (Phil) Foden – they have five or six of them."

    Neville added: "Fernandes and Pogba may open up defences in these situations, the rest need space to operate.

    "Man City have five or six players, if two are injured someone else can unlock the door. If it's not Fernandes then it's probably Luke Shaw who's most likely to do something."

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Hannibal Mejbri has signed a new long-term deal at Manchester United.

    The French midfielder joined for a reported £9.5million fee from Monaco in 2019 and has impressed in the club’s reserves.

    With the Red Devils seeing Mejbri as a star not just of the future but of today, having promoted him to the first-team, the club and player have agreed a new contract.

    Meanwhile, Man Utd are reportedly the clear favourites to snare Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic for £30million.

    Gazzetta dello Sport reports the 23-year-old centre-back is ready to leave this summer after turning down a contract extension.

    His deal in Florence runs until 2022 but both he and France legend Franck Ribery are believed to have their bags packed ready to move on at the end of the season.

    A Premier League destination looks to be his preferred choice with Old Trafford most likely.

    Gazzetta claims United have been in contact with the player’s agent since last summer and therefore could have an edge in negotiations.

    Finally, Borussia Dortmund will charge £130million for Erling Haaland this summer, according to reports.

    Premier League sides Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in the Norwegian striker.

    Haaland, 20, will be available for just £65m in the summer of 2022, when a release clause becomes active.

    But as many as SIX clubs have already registered their interest in taking him ahead of next season.

    And according to Bild, it will take DOUBLE his release clause in order to capture him from Dortmund a year early.

    In addition to the Premier League quartet, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also after Haaland’s signature.

    “The League Cup and FA Cup has been the starting point for Manchester United teams over the last 15 to 20 years.

    “If Solskjaer is going to be successful at this club, he not only needs to finish second in the Premier League, but he has to win a trophy.

    "He's got competition in Alex [Telles], Alex has done well. Luke has really taken on that competition. He goes forward, he trusts himself.

    "He's become a dad – that does a lot to many – and Luke has matured so much I'd say in the last two-and-a-half years and I love to see his development.

    "He's now 25 and has become a man, one of the experienced boys in our team and his attitude has been spot on.

    "When you have this talent the world is at your feet."
