Robin van Persie believes Edinson Cavani would be a great addition to the Manchester United team.

Edinson Cavani openly expressed his desire to quit Paris Saint-Germain earlier after becoming a bench warmer in favor of Mauro Icardi.

The striker was pushing for a move away in January and was heavily linked with a switch to Atletico Madrid. But Cavani was forced to stay at the French capital after the deal fell through.

The 33-year old’s contract with PSG will come to an end after this season. And once again, numerous clubs will be looking to secure his services when it happens.

And former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie feels Cavani’s addition will do a great deal of help to the club.

When asked by Sport Bible who should Man United sign in the summer, Van Persie replied: “Edinson Cavani. I would definitely go for Cavani.

“He’s very fit, he’s a proven goalscorer, a goal machine.

“He has proven it at Napoli, PSG, and Uruguay. With him, if he starts, he will get you 25 goals a season. I’ve watched him play, I’ve played against him, he is like a proper goalscorer. He lives by scoring goals so I’d go for him.”
