MANCHESTER UNITEDSolskjaer reveals that Cavani is “unsure” about his future with Manchester Unitedby Sanidhya Bhardwaj 10 April 2021
Manchester United are set to make a trip to London as they face Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about the future of Edinson Cavani whose contract will come to an end this summer.
In response, Solskjaer said, “I’ve kept in touch with Edi of course. We keep an open dialogue and he’s still unsure what he wants to do next season, which I find fine.”
“It’s not been an easy year either for him or the rest of the world, this season, so he still wants time to make his mind up. I’m very sure we will get the good version of Edinson for the rest of the season. He knows this is the business end of the season.”
The 34-year old player joined the Red Devils last summer as a free agent. Injuries have often kept him out of the team. He has featured in 19 Premier League games out of which he started only 10 games. He has scored six goals and recorded two assists in the league.
Even though Edinson Cavani is not a long-term solution for Manchester United up front, he is good enough to play one more season for the Red Devils. He has shown glimpses of his brilliance against Everton and Southampton when he netted goals to win three points for his team.
He is a role model for forwards like Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford. Cavani has been a top-class striker for his previous clubs and for his country.
His movements off the ball are considered one of the best in the world. Not only he is an asset while attacking but also when his team do not have the ball. He runs tirelessly and covers every grass on the pitch to close down the opposition.
ESPN stated a few days back that Edinson Cavani might be looking to play in Argentina for Boca Juniors. With only two months left for the end of the season, we might see a development about his contract soon.
