A potential move by Cavani to Manchester United depends on the ability of the English team to secure a spot in the Champions League next season, according to the Daily Mail.

Cavani appears to be a prospect for manager David Moyes as he attempts to rebuild United. However, Cavani is interested in maintaining his status as one of Europe's top players, and that requires regular action in the Champions League, which United may not be able to offer next season.

Cavani, who missed the past month with a thigh injury, came on as a second-half substitute and scored in PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille on Sunday.

Cavani was introduced at the 70-minute mark and scored soon after to clinch Sunday's victory for PSG. The Uruguayan now has 14 goals in 22 total appearances during his debut Ligue 1 season. Expect Cavani to reclaim his starting spot soon, at which point he and teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic figure to torment opposing defenses together once again.

Cavani (thigh) will not play in the first leg of PSG's round of 16 matchup against Bayer Leverkusen, reports.

Cavani suffered a thigh injury back in January, and has already missed PSG's last two matches. Manager Laurent Blanc indicated he believed Cavani would be able to return February 23 against Toulouse, although he wouldn't guarantee it.

Cavani suffered a thigh injury Friday night against Bordeaux and according to PSG manager Laurent Blanc, will now face "several weeks" on the sidelines, Sky Sports reports.

Cavani's thigh injury occurred during the 75th minute of Friday's match, when the striker was immediately substituted off the pitch. With 13 goals in his debut Ligue 1 season, Cavani's absence opens a starting position along PSG's front line for the near future. As such, players like Lucas and Ezequiel Lavezzi should see more scoring opportunities while Cavani remains out.

Cavani scored a 58th minute goal in Sunday's win against Nantes.

Cavani continues his impressive goal record during his first Ligue 1 season, as Sunday's strike brought him 13 goals through 19 appearances (15 starts). The Uruguayan has meshed seamlessly with teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front for the Parisian outfit.

Cavani scored and assisted in PSG's win over Sochaux on Saturday.

Cavani provided the helper on PSG's fifth and final goal Saturday, which surprisingly marked the striker's first assist of this season. While he may be short in that department, Cavani's 11 goals evidence the huge impact he's had to this point this season.

Cavani scored in the 36th minute of Sunday's win over Lyon.

Cavani, who also scored in PSG's midweek Champions League tie, found the goal by using his head Sunday. The Uruguayan now has 10 goals in his debut Ligue 1 campaign.

Cavani will not play Saturday against Nice due to a hamstring injury, the match's official press kit reports.

Cavani's hamstring problem also caused him to miss PSG's midweek Champions League match. Although the Parisians will be without Cavani, Ligue 1's leading scorer, they welcomed back fellow striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic from a swollen knee earlier this week, so their attack remains very strong.
