Edison Cavani

English Premier League outfit Man United might have left it late to seal the signature of some of their targets but from all indications, the summer transfer window will not end until they secure at least two additions to their team.

It is understood that they have an agreement in principle for the signature of FC Porto defender Alex Telles, and he could be completing the deal before the end of Monday for a fee of £13.5 million-plus £1.5 million add-ons. He is expected to be at the Old Trafford for four years.

Meanwhile, Edison Cavani will be signing for the Red Devils as well from French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain as a free player after reportedly flying o Manchester on Sunday night to undergo a medical with a two-year deal worth £200,000 weekly wage agreed upon.

However, former Man United captain Gary Neville has queried the club for going against their stated policy of investing in young talents by signing a 33-year-old Edison Cavani.

He stated that for the Red Devils to have left it late before signing the 33-year-old striker, it means he wasn’t in their plans and not their strategy while other pundits describe the move as a panic buy.
