Edinson Cavani has possibly said his goodbyes to the Man United fans at the game last night…
Manchester United Football Club found their new cult hero last season. In the unlikeliest of places. I’ll be the first to admit I wasn’t sold by the Edinson Cavani signing. Boy, I was proven wrong.
From minute one, El Matador endeared himself to the Old Trafford Faithful with his running, effort, energy and passion for our beautiful game. He’s one of those players you only truly start to appreciate when he plays for your club.
Rumours about Cavani‘s long-term future have been pretty rife within the press recently. Many believe a move to FC Barcelona could happen in January.
It goes without saying, I’d love for him to finish what he started here – and see out the season at the very least.
However, at the end of the game yesterday, one fan grabbed a video of the United star potentially waving his goodbyes to the fans as the Reds beat Burnley 3-1. As Maynard Manyowa also states, he could’ve had a family member in that stand, but watching the video itself, coupled with the rumours about his future, makes me think there’s possibly more to it…

I’d be gutted if Cavani leaves. I really would. It’s no coincidence that we play a whole lot better with him in the starting line-up than when he’s on the bench or injured.
He’s just an infectious personality who motivates those around him to give that extra 10%. He’s a leader on the field, while the Uruguay international also scores important goals.
Replacing all those attributes in the mid-season window would be a pretty huge ask for the Old Trafford club. If Anthony Martial is also on the way out, we’d be looking supremely light in that area of the field…
What do you make of the video? Is the fan right? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
