Richard Keys, from Sky Sports and talkSPORT, has declared in his blog that United have a "done deal" for the Uruguay international.
"Edison Cavani is a done deal - if they can persuade him to sign. It'll cost £80m to get him out of PSG.
"But will he want to join a team that might not even be playing Europa Lge (sic) football?"
Cavani's agents were in London three weeks ago for talks with interested clubs, which included United and Chelsea.
