Man Utd Target New Edinson Cavani Alternative

Manchester United have their eyes set on striker Andrea Belotti as a potential replacement for Edinson Cavani ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old is also a target for Premier League rivals Chelsea and Tottenham, as well as the likes of Inter Milan and Lyon, according to reports from Italy.

Cavani's future is uncertain, with the striker having been heavily tipped to join Boca Juniors this summer after a season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

But with the manager and football director John Murtough facing up to the prospect of losing Cavani, the Torino hitman is reportedly being looked at, according to Tuttosport.

The Italian publication also claim that United, Tottenham and Chelsea are among several top clubs tracking Belotti ahead of the transfer window.

Belotti’s contract due to expire at the end of next season.
