Manchester United fans have been patiently waiting for this news all week, with Edinson Cavani set to stay for another year.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect this sort of impact from Edinson Cavani, particularly at his age. In this case, I’m delighted to be proven wrong as El Matador has been absolutely brilliant.
Leadership qualities, a hard worker, a lethal goal-scorer and an all-around team player. Cavani is the perfect player for this current United side and his recent form has been nothing short of spectacular.
Questions about his future at Old Trafford were real. However, I’m delighted to report that the in-form United star has signed a contract extension, with the announcement expected in the ‘next days’. That’s according to Fabrizio Romano.
Cavani has seemingly put pen to paper on a twelve-month extension, keeping him at Old Trafford until June 2022. It’s thought that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ‘pushing’ to keep him, with the player now accepting the offer. You absolutely love to see it.
First and foremost, this just gives Solskjaer one less issue to fix over the summer. Perhaps it’ll mean United can now focus on other areas, like a new right-winger or centre-half.
Cavani has oozed class ever since walking through the Old Trafford doors and having him around is only a good thing. If half of his ability and skill can rub off on the likes of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, it’ll do them the world of good.
Now it’s down to Cavani and the rest of our squad to fire us to a Europa League title. What a way to cap off a stunning debut season for El Matador and at least he’ll now see how appreciated he is by our fans next season!
