Cavani put pen to paper on a one-year extension earlier this month and he will reportedly earn £15m in wages, meaning that ‘there is unlikely to be enough money left’ for both Sancho and Kane.
Former United defender Gary Neville recently claimed earlier this month that he does not expect the club to sign a new striker now that Cavani has agreed to stay, with Sancho a more likely addition.
“I don’t think they will sign another striker,” Neville said. “I haven’t got the contacts at the club I used to have, it’s my assumption.
“They’ve been desperate for Sancho and were criticised for not signing him but they could look exceptionally smart if they get him this summer for half the price.
