Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responds to Edinson Cavani transfer question

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been quizzed over a potential move for Edinson Cavani.

The veteran forward, 33, appears to be Old Trafford-bound in a shock late swoop.

Cavani is expected to be announced by United in the closing hours of the window, ending his short time as free agent following his PSG exit over the summer.

But Solskjaer was remaining tight-lipped about the possibility of a late move when asked about the matter before United's clash with Tottenham this afternoon.

"You can't really do anything. I can't say anything before a deal is done. If it is," he told Sky Sports.

"My mind is on the game, we need to focus on that one."

However, while Solskjaer was unwilling to discuss the matter, Cavani's agent has confirmed an agreement is in place.

The striker’s agent told Inside Futbol: It’s true.

“There is an agreement [with Manchester United].”

Cavani was reportedly offered to Real Madrid and Barcelona earlier in the summer after leaving PSG.

Meanwhile, Benfica and Atletico Madrid reportedly snubbed the Uruguayan over his wage demands and desired agent fees.

United welcomed Tottenham to Old Trafford this afternoon for the penultimate Premier League game of the weekend.

And the Red Devils will be keen to get another win on the board following last week's eventful victory at Brighton.

"We've got to get intensity and tempo to our play. We know that they're going to be a difficult side to break down but they've got pace up front to counter attack," Solskjaer added.

"Lamela played really well against us last time as well.

"We have to break them down cleverly enough.

"Down the sides, try to get in behind them."
