PSG have reportedly told Manchester United that they will only listen to offers for striker Edinson Cavani that match their asking price of €50m.

Cavani has been linked with both the Red Devils and Arsenal in the past and in a team short of firepower, manager Louis van Gaal may be prepared to turn to the Uruguayan to lead the United attack.

The Star reports that the French side have put a €50m price tag on one of their star players, though United are not willing to pay such a lofty price for the 29-year-old, but are prepared to negotiate for his signature.

One player who could be departing from the Premier League is Leicester City’s star performer Riyad mahrez.

The 25-year-old Algerian international is tipped by many to be crowned the PFA Player of the Year after an outstanding season for the table toppers and has been linked with a €30m move to struggling Chelsea in the summer.

The Daily Mirror reports that Barcelona are now interested in bringing Mahrez to the Nou Camp.

The Foxes are set to open negotiations on a new deal, but Mahrez will be a wanted man this summer and the Blaugrana are keeping tabs on the talented winger.
