New Manchester United star Edinson Cavani spoke of his decision to join the Red Devils, which turned out to not look as easy as people think.
It should be noted, Cavani was previously on a free transfer after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ended last summer.
Since the end of the 2019/20 season he has been linked with Manchester United many times, but the new Uruguay striker is willing to sign a contract with the Red Devils on the deadline day of the summer transfer market.
Initially, he had difficulty adapting to the style of playing English football, but slowly the ex-Napoli seems to have started to find the right rhythm.
Previously with Paris Saint-Germain, Cavani was one of the goal-hungry strikers. In fact, he managed to score 200 goals in 301 games with Les Parisiens, which makes him the top scorer in the club’s history.
While at Manchester United so far, Cavani has scored 7 goals, which is quite a lot considering he is not the main attacker of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
Speaking about his decision to join Manchester United, Cavani himself admitted that he had to think long beforehand, considering that there would be a process of adaptation to the new life and environment in the city of Manchester.
“I always thought that settling down and adapting to a different place, a new culture, different customs, is always difficult to do,” he told United Review.
No wonder his performance on the field is also influenced by life outside, including family factors.
“Even though you’ve tried to get fully involved and get it over with quickly, right now there’s a lot around us that makes the process a little more difficult than usual,”
“But, of course, you have a family life at home away from the games. It’s not just football,” he continued.
In fact, what Cavani went through is quite natural for any player who comes from outside England. Moreover, Cavani has previously lived in Italy for 7 years, and he also spent 7 years in France while defending PSG.
