Paris Saint-Germain line-up a shocking transfer offer for Manchester United’s striker this summer
Ligue-1 side, Paris Saint-Germain, has been one of the deadliest offensive sides in Europe for the past few seasons. With the likes of Neymar Jr, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani, and recent addition Mauro Icardi in the team, the French side has plenty of firepower upfront to provide them with a plethora of goals and goal-scoring opportunities.
However, one of the key figures of the PSG attack, Edinson Cavani is set to leave the French capital. With the attacker turning 33 and his contract expiring this season, no contract extension was offered to the Uruguayan and hence he will not be continuing with the club.
This departure leaves a void in the Paris Saint-Germain’s striking force, and the Argentine Mauro Icardi is the one who’s been appointed to fill that void. But due to unconvincing and disappointing performances after the restart of football, PSG is reportedly looking elsewhere for backup options or possible replacements.
One of the big names linked with a possible transfer is Portuguese international, Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus. Frustrated with his team’s performance, the iconic number 7 would be looking for a move away from the Turin side and PSG seem to be the perfect destination. Although a move that big is highly unlikely, the Ligue-1 champions have found a more viable alternative in Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo.
The 31-year-old is currently on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua until January to Manchester United.The Nigerian has been playing well for the Red Devils, managing to find the net 5 times in his last 18 appearances. With experience and the promise of quality, the French side would be looking to add the striker to the squad for an affordable transfer fee.
According to reports, first contacts between the two parties have already taken place and the details of the deal are yet to be worked out. It remains to be seen where the Nigerian striker would play the next season.
