REVEALED: Van Gaal blocked Man Utd signing Cavani

Louis van Gaal blocked Manchester United from signing PSG star Edinson Cavani, it has been revealed.

The Manchester Evening News says Old Trafford chiefs were keen on the Paris St-Germain star.

Although he splashed the cash during his tenure - including big-bucks swoops for Angel Di Maria, Memphis Depay and Ander Herrera - he was apparently not prepared to bring Cavani to England.

Taking to Twitter, Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst wrote: "Cavani bottling it in a big game again.

"Van Gaal got little right at United but he was right to kill off interest in Cavani."
