Peripheral Man Utd attacker being considered by Inter ahead of summer move

Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani is being considered by Inter Milan ahead of a potential summer move.

Inter are thought to be interested in bringing in striker reinforcements this summer after losing Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea last summer.

They replaced the Belgian striker with former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko and could be looking at bringing another experienced international to the San Siro.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via InsideFutbol) is reporting that Cavani is one of the names being considered by the Inter chiefs and they could look to bring him to Italy in the summer.

The Uruguayan is out of contract in the summer and has been a peripheral figure for United this season after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Injuries have plagued Cavani’s second season at Old Trafford and he has only been able to contribute two goals so far, compared to the 17 he managed last campaign.

Whether 35-year-old Cavani is the right fit for Inter who already have 36-year-old Dzeko and 33-year-old Alexis Sanchez in their attacking ranks it remains to be seen but a potential summer move could be in the offing.

Elsewhere, Paul Merson has urged West Ham midfielder Declan Rice to leave the club this summer, naming Manchester United as a possible destination.

Writing in his Daily Star column, Merson said: “Declan Rice should strike while the iron’s hot and leave West Ham this summer. He’s taken his game to another level this season and is playing like N’Golo Kante now, affecting things at both ends of the pitch.

“I’d be surprised if Declan Rice is playing for West Ham next season. They have completely punched above their weight for months.

“Where could he go? Depends what happens at Chelsea and who buys the club. Manchester United would be a good move, but will they get in the Champions League? That’s where Rice wants to play.

“They play Tottenham this weekend and playing Spurs should always be a big game for West Ham but the Europa League game against Sevilla was a bigger one.

“West Ham have gone past Spurs, and to be honest I don’t know how Tottenham have allowed that to happen.”
