Edinson Cavani has committed his future to Manchester United for another year.
Yesterday, there were whispers suggesting that Edinson Cavani had penned a twelve-month extension at the Theatre of Dreams. Shortly after those stories started to surface, the club confirmed the excellent news.
El Matador is staying for another season and that means he’ll finally get to play live in front of the Old Trafford faithful – who adore him so much.
We’re talking about a natural-born goalscorer, an on-field leader and someone who our younger attackers can learn from. Having Cavani in and around that dressing room is going to be absolutely massive.
It’s fair to say that as Edi was putting pen to paper, the 34-year-old looked absolutely delighted. I’d like to think we fans had a part to play in that.

Honestly, this is the best news I’ve heard all week. Not only are we keeping a fantastic player around but it gives Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one less problem to worry about going into a massive transfer window.
No longer do we need to spend time worrying about signing his replacement, rather Ed Woodward can focus all his efforts on adding a top-class centre-half or maybe even a right-winger.
For Cavani, it’s about getting a full pre-season under his belt (unlike last summer), and hitting the ground running. If that’s the case, I wouldn’t bet against him being that 20+ goal-a-season man we so desperately require.
Now, it’s down to Cavani and his teammates to fire us to a Europa League crown in a couple of weeks.
Congratulations on the new deal, Edi!
