Radamel Falcao and Edison Cavani are in the middle of an amazing transfer saga, emerging from Paris and its’ prominent sports newspaper L’Equipe. Both strikers are among the most feared in Europe, representing some of the best forward transfer properties there are. Manchester United have got Falcao on loan last summer from Monaco, but could just use their option to buy the Colombian, even though he is not living up to the expectations.
According to the papers, after United buy out the contract they will look to make an immediate swap with Paris Saint-Germain for the Uruguayan striker Cavani. Since joining PSG, although scoring 24 goals in 46 appearances, Cavani is still struggling to reproduce his form from Italian side Napoli and is less exciting for the Parisians than he was before.
While Louis van Gaal is still to decide whether he could use Falcao who scored only 3 goals since joining Manchester United, Cavani is also in an unenviable position where many believe that either he or Ibrahimovic have to leave Paris. Cavani made a €64m move to PSG in 2013, and Falcao’s estimated transfer value is €60m, after the £43m United pay to Monaco.
There is very little to separate the duo. Falcao does edge in goals, but Cavani takes the edge in assists, and any difference between them is within an acceptable margin. Cavani is of course more versatile as he is quicker to move and a slightly better dribbler.
Although many would like to see the Uruguayan star on Old Trafford, Manchester United would certainly be risking a lot buying Falcao only to sell him on.
