Although new United boss David Moyes wants to sign the Uruguayan from the Rafael Benitez-run club, he will have to battle Real Madrid and Chelsea, who are also furiously chasing the player, the Mirror reports.
According to the report, Cavani's powerful style looks ideal for the Premier League and is being eyed by Moyes, who is keen to play two players up front, to make him a perfect partner for Robin van Persie, adding that the South American has similar attributes to Rooney, whose relationship with United is still strained.
The report further said that with Napoli ready to cash on Cavani from the several available mega bids, United's owners, the Glazer family, are also set to back Moyes although no club has matched Cavani's 54 million-pound release clause.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has said that he believes that United has lost their fear factor without former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, adding that as Moyes does not have the aura that Ferguson had, it may influence the players. (ANI)
