Football rumours from the media


What the papers say Edinson Cavani‘s potential departure from Old Trafford has been complicated by a £2million clause in the striker’s contract, according to the Mirror. Manchester United will have to pay the fee if they failed to trigger a one-year contract extension for the 34-year-old Uruguay international, who arrived in the north in October after leaving Paris St-Germain and has been linked with Boca Juniors.
