Cafu eyes Old Trafford
Cafu currently plays for Roma
Cafu says Roma must decide if they want to keep him
World Cup-winning captain Cafu claims he is poised to join Manchester United on a free transfer at the end of the season.

According to the Sunday Express, the Brazilian right-back says he is ready to turn his back on Serie A giants Roma in order to move to the English Premiership.


I have turned down many lucrative offers from England in the past but this is different
Cafu

"Manchester United have been chasing me hard for a long time," said Cafu.

"They have made it clear that they are waiting for me to sign for them in the summer when I am a free agent.

"I have turned down many lucrative offers from England in the past but this is different.

"The interest of a club with such a terrific ambition and with a such a prestigious history makes me happy and tells me that I have done very well in my career.

"Once I know what Roma are offering, if anything, then I will evaluate all the advantages and disadvantages of this move to Manchester United and then decide."
