David Moyes turned down the opportunity to sign new Manchester United star Edinson Cavani while managing the Red Devils in 2013.
According to The Athletic, Ed Woodward encouraged Moyes to add the Uruguayan striker to the United squad after the new manager left Everton to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
However, a deal never materialised as Moyes was left unimpressed with the forward after three separate scouting trips.
