Edinson Cavani is set to join Manchester United on deadline day it what is nominally a free transfer, but is going to cost the Red Devils plenty of money.
The 33-year-old left Paris Saint-Germain in June after seven years at the club which saw him score 200 goals in 301 games across all competitions.
He is now coming to the Premier League with United agreeing a one-year deal with an option for a second year for the Uruguayan forward.
Goal report that the deal will see Cavani earn £10m-per-season, which works out at around £190,000-a-week, making him one of the highest earners at the club.
Atletico Madrid had looked like a more likely destination for Cavani, and his preferred option, but United’s offer was so significantly better – around £1m-a-year – than the Spanish club’s that he has opted for the Old Trafford switch.
The veteran forward is also set to be handed a €4m (£3.6m) fee when the move is completed and the possibility of earning €2m (£1.8m) in bonuses during his time in the Premier League.
The huge agent fees had put off other suitors, including Benfica, earlier in the transfer window.
The move for Cavani has come about after a deal for Jadon Sancho became impossible for United to complete as Borussia Dortmund refused to lower their asking price of £108m.
Ousmane Dembele remains a last-minute target for United as they work to seal a loan deal for the Barcelona man.
