Trevor Sinclair picks Edinson Cavani out as a potential Man City target

Edinson Cavani is the one Manchester United player that would be a 'perfect' fit for neighbours Manchester City.

That's according to talkSPORT pundit and former City winger Trevor Sinclair, who has urged Pep Guardiola to take stock and pursue the experienced Uruguay striker this January window.

Having coasted to a third Premier League title in four seasons, City broke the £100million barrier to sign playmaker Jack Grealish from Aston Villa during the summer.

However, after identifying England captain Harry Kane as a priority target to replace Sergio Aguero - now with La Liga giants Barcelona - key figures responsible for deals at the Etihad Stadium were priced out of a follow-up move by Tottenham.

Kane reluctantly pledged his future to the Londoners as a result, while Guardiola has continued to deploy Raheem Sterling or Ferran Torres in a 'false nine' position.

Despite scoring 10 goals in 13 starts for United in the Premier League last season, Cavani is expected to play second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford and beyond this season.

So what are the chances of him following the path set by fellow South American frontman Carlos Tevez?

It's around 12 years since he controversially traded red for blue in this famous footballing city.

Speaking on radio station talkSPORT earlier Friday morning, Sinclair said: "There were rumours about [Edinson] Cavani possibly going to West Ham. I would take him at Manchester City. I think he would be perfect."

Cavani signed for United from big-spending French side PSG last summer and penned a one-year extension to his contract before the 2021/2022 campaign.

The 34-year-old has made 42 appearances all-told for the Old Trafford giants and has scored 53 times in 123 outings for Uruguay's national team.
