Manchester United Transfer: Cavani departure close, Vazquez pursuit, Declan Rice plan

Edinson Cavani-Manchester United

Cavani set for exit

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is expected to join Boca Juniors at the end of the season.

According to reports, the transfer is closer than ever, and the vice president of the South American club, Juan Roman Riquelme, is personally handling the negotiations with the Manchester United striker.

Cavani signed a two-year contract with the Red Devils at the start of the season, but both parties have the option to cut short of his stay at Old Trafford this summer.

It seems that the player has decided to return to South America and his father recently revealed that there’s a 60% chance of the player leaving Manchester United at the end of the season.

Vazquez pursuit

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been linked with a move for Lucas Vasquez.

The 29-year-old is nearing the end of his deal at the Spanish club, and he has refused to commit his future to Real Madrid amid interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.

The Red Devils could definitely use some depth in the wide areas, and Vasquez can play as a right-back as well. His versatility could be really useful for Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season.

Declan Rice interest

Meanwhile, the Premier League giants are set to explore the possibility of signing Declan Rice this summer.

The West Ham United midfielder has developed into one of the most exciting talents in the Premier League, and it is no surprise that the Red Devils are keen on signing him.

Manchester United need to sign a quality defensive midfielder, and Rice would be an upgrade on the likes of McTominay and Matic.

Apparently, Manchester United are hoping to use Jesse Lingard in a deal to sign the West Ham midfielder.

Lingard is currently on loan at West Ham, and he has been outstanding for the London side. The Hammers could look to sign him permanently at the end of the season, and it will be interesting to see if the two sides can work out a deal that benefits them both.
