Man Utd boss Ferguson ready to outbid Man City, Real Madrid for Cavani

Manchester United have joined the battle for Napoli star Edinson Cavani. Naples sources say United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is ready trump neighbours Manchester City and Real Madrid for the Uruguay international.

Cavani was scouted several times by United chief talent spotter Martin Ferguson during the season.

City coach Attilio Lombardo recently said that the Eastlands club were pursuing Cavani, with Arsenal and Tottenham also connected to the star.

"I hope there can be some negotiations between Napoli and Manchester City, especially as I'd see one of their three forwards would really suit City," Lombardo told reporters.

"The trio of Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi would bring success to any club."

But after word got around that Cavani could be a star in England, Manchester United have reportedly decided they want to make a bid for the star.

While City have a much higher budget than Manchester United, Ferguson has decided that money is no object as they chase Cavani.
