Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is ready to hold negotiations with Barcelona over a January move, Sport claims.

The Uruguayan netted 17 goals for the Red Devils last term, and it was anticipated that he would continue to spearhead the attack.

However, the shock return of Cristiano Ronaldo has drastically hampered his game time. He has barely started due to the Portuguese's presence.

According to Sport, the 34-year-old is expected to push for an exit in January rather than seeing out the season with the Red Devils.

Cavani is keen on testing himself in a new league. He is prepared to accept Barcelona's proposal with the chance to play regularly.

The Catalan giants are desperately eyeing a new striker with Sergio Aguero likely to retire soon. The Argentine has a heart concern.

Cavani could be available for a nominal fee next month, but it remains to be seen whether he will take a pay cut on his £250,000-a-week wages.
