Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani could push for an exit when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.

The Uruguayan bagged 17 goals in his debut season last term. He signed a one-year deal this summer after his fine contribution.

However, his game time has been significantly reduced by Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival. He is no longer guaranteed starts.

According to Sport, Barcelona are keen on pursuing his services for a nominal fee during the winter transfer window.

The club still need to reduce their wage budget by a staggering €300m, but they are permitted to make low-cost signings.

Cavani may need to take a significant pay-cut to join them, but he would be assured a regular starting role at the club.

Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in his services, but they only see him as a back up to Karim Benzema.

The Uruguayan stayed put with the Red Devils this summer, but he has grown frustrated with his current situation.
