  • United, and Juventus, are keeping tabs on PSG striker Mauro Icardi’s situation 
  • Icardi is behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the pecking order 


Manchester United have a contingency plan in place in case Edinson Cavani leaves next month, with the Red Devils reportedly lining up a swoop for Mauro Icardi.

Cavani’s future at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation, with the 34-year-old entering the final six months of his contract.

And according to Calciomercato, the Premier League outfit are preparing a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Icardi should Cavani depart in the January transfer window.

The Italian publication claims Icardi is having a difficult time in Paris, with his game-time reduced following Lionel Messi’s arrival this summer.

Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are the first-choice front three at the Parc des Princes, meaning Icardi has often been a substitute when the aforementioned trio are fit.

However, they add that United could face competition from Juventus – with the Italian giants’ monitoring the 28-year-old’s situation.

As reported by Sportsmail, Barcelona are interested in Cavani – with the Uruguayan keen on the move too but it all depends on interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
