Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United could both miss out on the signing of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani after another competitor lodged a bid for the player.
Edinson Cavani is the subject of a €10m bid from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid who are the frontrunners for the player.
PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed the Atletico Madrid bid shortly after the French Cup win over Lorient who are in the second tier of French football these days.
Leonardo made this known in a chat with reporters after the Lorient game.

Chelsea and Manchester United are in the market for a new striker and Edinson Cavani is at the top of their shortlist.
Blues boss Frank Lampard doesn’t trust his striker options of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi who are backups to leading striker Tammy Abraham who is the leading scorer for his team this season.
Tammy Abraham has scored 15 goals in all competitions this term including 13 goals in the Premier League.
For Manchester United, the striker search has been intensified following the news that leading goalscorer Marcus Rashford will miss a lot of games as a result of a back issue.
Rashford could be out of action until March at least.
