REVEALED: Man Utd called Cavani Monday with TWO proposals

Manchester United have failed with a firm push to win the race for PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

Cavani's brother and agent is in Madrid this morning to finalise personal terms over a move to Atletico Madrid for the striker.

Le 10 Sport says United made contact with Cavani on Monday, informing the veteran they wanted to sign him either this week - or to a pre-contract ahead of a Bosman move in June.

However, Cavani politely turned down United's proposals, insisting it was Atletico where he wishes to play next.

The Uruguay international is due to follow his brother to Madrid potentially today for an Atletico medical.
