Manchester United 'join Chelsea in £53million race for PSG striker Edinson Cavani'. See details...

Manchester United and Chelsea are in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani this summer.

That is according to Le Parisien, who say both Premier League sides are monitoring the situation with Cavani no longer feeling at home at the Parc des Princes.

He had a row with Neymar over a penalty earlier this season and has apparently become increasingly frustrated in the French capital.

PSG would reportedly be willing to sell the Uruguay international for around £53million.

Mourinho fires Sanchez warning
Jose Mourinho admits he is not getting the best out of Alexis Sanchez — and claims it could be next season before Manchester United fans see value for money.

Sanchez has struggled following his much-hyped January move from Arsenal, as the Old Trafford giants' highest-paid player on £500,000-a-week.

The 29-year-old has scored just once – a rebound from a missed penalty – in eight appearances so far, and Mourinho claims he was bought at the wrong time.

Despite his struggles, Sanchez is set to start on Saturday at home to arch-rivals Liverpool, although the manager said it could take several months before he is back to the form that made him beloved by Gunners supporters.

Manchester United are considering a summer swoop for Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

With Jose Mourinho needing to add a centre-back this summer, United have watched the £20million-rated Greece international several times in recent weeks.

Although they are hopeful of signing Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld , Sokratis is also on their radar — and is a much more achievable target.

The 29-year-old was signed by now-Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp in 2013 when he was in charge of Dortmund and has been a reliable performer for the Germans.
