Coral’s rumour reel

Jose Mourinho could be eyeing reuniting Zlatan Ibrahimovic with his former PSG striker partner at Old Trafford, with Edinson Cavani to Manchester United linked on today’s back pages.

Despite an important triumph over Tottenham at the weekend, United have failed to see out games recently, so the addition of another elite striker could provide the extra goals to see the Manchester outfit rocket up the table.

Cavani has netted 20 in as many outings this term and is seen as the long term PSG replacement for Ibrahimovic. However, protracted contract talks are yet to prove positive and have reportedly alerted Mourinho.

Now plying his trade with the Red Devils, Zlatan partnered Cavani in Paris – collecting three league titles together.

With the Uruguayan’s contract running out in 2018, the French giants could be tempted to pull the trigger and cut their losses by getting a large fee in the coming winter window or later next year.
