Manchester United to rival Chelsea for PSG outcast Cavani

Manchester United are exploring the possibility of signing Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain this month, claims The Daily Telegraph.

Maurizio Sarri complimented Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother as the Portuguese
star extended his scoring streak in a 3-1 win over Roma to advance to

“I don’t think about it (winning the title). I just think about winning the next matches … let’s carry on,” he said after Liverpool’s 22nd victory in 23 league games this season.
