Manchester United are keen to keep Edinson Cavani

Veteran striker Cavani has just six months left on his big contract at Old Trafford

Manchester United want to keep Edinson Cavani at Old Trafford next month amid interest in the Uruguay striker from Barcelona.

Cavani has been linked with a move to the Nou Camp in the January transfer window to replace Sergio Aguero who was forced to retire from football this week because of an irregular heartbeat.

Barca are also chasing Manchester City’s Ferran Torres with the bidding currently around £42million.

After agreeing a new 12-month contract in the summer, Cavani has made just three starts for United this season due to a tendon problem in his leg and the return of Cristiano Ronaldo as United’s first-choice striker.

Speculation in Spain has suggested that the 34-year-old would be interested in a move to Barca, but it’s understood that United want him to see out the remaining six months of his contract.
