REPORTS: Manchester United striker has agreed to join La Liga club in January

Manchester United will be hoping to win additional trophies under interim manager Ralf Rangnick before the conclusion of the 2021/2022 season.

The Old Trafford club made several additions to their team during the summer as they prepare to compete for the Premier League crown this season with Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea.

However, it seems like Manchester United's strategy is working thus far, as the club is presently sixth in the Premier League rankings after 16 league games.

Manchester United, on the other hand, might be shaken by suggestions that seasoned striker Edinson Cavani is set to depart the club when the transfer market opens.

The Uruguayan international, 34, joined Manchester United in 2020 after leaving Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain, and has been a crucial component of the first-team squad since his arrival.

Last season, the experienced center-forward was heavily engaged for Manchester United, scoring 17 goals and assisting six times in 39 games across all competitions.

Edinson Cavani, on the other hand, has battled to stay fit at Manchester United this season, scoring only one goal in eight appearances across all competitions.

Despite his continuous injury troubles, Edinson Cavani still has plenty of admirers, and according to The Sun, Barcelona is interested in bringing him to Spain.

According to the rumors, the veteran striker recently turned down a move to Argentine club Boca Juniors because he has already agreed to join Barcelona when the transfer market opens.

Following the retirement of Sergio Aguero, Barcelona is reported to be in desperate need of a striker and will now attempt to complete a move for Edinson Cavani in January.

If he signs, Edinson Cavani will join a Barcelona front line that currently includes Ansu Fati, Memphis Depay, Yusuf Demir, and Ousmane Dembele.
