Edinson Cavani has sent a message to the Man United fans ahead of the new campaign.
Last summer, I’ll be the first to admit I thought Manchester United’s move for Edinson Cavani was a gamble. It stunk of a late desperation move in order to bolster a young attack.
Oh, how wrong I was. After El Matador got into his stride, we began to see his full capabilities. Not only is he an absolute menace for opposing defenders due to his workrate, but he’s a supremely intelligent footballer who still knows where the back of the net is.
Aged 34, it was always going to go one of two ways – either Radamel Falcao or Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I’m pleased to report it was definitely the latter, with Cavani already a cult hero amongst the Old Trafford terraces.
After a international summer spent with Uruguay, Cavani has sent a message to the fans, signalling to us all that his mind is back on United.
Check out the message, via Cavani’s Instagram stories here:
As Cavani hints at, it’s nice to be loved. The Uruguay international is feeling that affection from United – and us supporters are so excited to pack into Old Trafford to show him how much we care about what he has done for this club.
I’m just so pleased he’s decided to stick around for another season. It would’ve been so cruel for him to depart after playing a campaign behind closed doors. Now, he’ll get to hear that Stretford End roar week-in-week-out.
Now for Cavani, it’s about putting in the work in training and trying to help his side to a trophy or two come next May.
