The 34-year-old striker has been included in the Red Devil’s squad for their Premier League clash against Newcastle on Monday evening but isn’t expected to be named in the starting XI.

Despite being available on a free transfer next summer, the Catalan club is reportedly eager to sign the Uruguayan in the January transfer window.

With Cavani set to leave Man Utd on a free at the end of the season, Barcelona is hoping that the Premier League club take the decision at a meeting on Tuesday to discuss his contract termination. The 34-year-old is eager to lead the Catalan attack meanwhile, his departure could save United more than 1.5 million in wages.
