Manchester United should be looking to bring in “goal machine” Edinson Cavani when the summer transfer window opens, says Robin van Persie.
The prolific Paris Saint-Germain striker came close to securing a move away from France in January.
He was, however, to see the deadline pass with no deal put in place.
Van Persie feels the Red Devils should be doing all they can to land Cavani as he is a proven performer at the very highest level.
Quizzed on who he would target if calling the shots at Old Trafford, former Red Devils striker Van Persie told SPORTbible:
“Edinson Cavani. I would definitely go for Cavani; he’s very fit, he’s a proven goalscorer, a goal machine, he has proven it at Napoli, PSG and Uruguay.
“With him, if he starts, he will get you 25 goals a season. I’ve watched him play, I’ve played against him, he is like a proper goalscorer. He lives by scoring goals so I’d go for him.”
