Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he was very satisfied with the performance shown by Edinson Cavani throughout the first half of this season. The tactician then indicated that a new contract was offered for the Uruguay player.
For information, the former Napoli striker joined Manchester United in the transfer market last summer. At that time, Cavani joined Old Trafford on a free transfer, aka free, since his contract with PSG had ended.
At an age that is no longer young, 33 years, it is very natural when Manchester United only binds him with a one-year contract with an option to extend his contract for another year.
But as many people expect, Cavani’s performance in the first half of this season with Manchester United has been slick. From a total of 13 appearances in all competitions, most of which were played as a substitute, he scored four goals and two assists.
Most recently, the Uruguay national team player also played as a substitute in the match against Leicester City last weekend. In that match, Cavani successfully recorded one assist, but failed to provide three points for the Red Devils.
Regardless, overall Solskjaer is very pleased with Edinson Cavani’s performance. What is clear, the presence of the player really has a positive impact. However, regarding the details of the contract, the tactician had nothing to say.
“At the moment he looks like he still has a few years left in his body, so I won’t say anything other than that,”
“He had a good impact when he entered here. Let’s focus on the development of everything, but he still has a few more years in him,” he said, quoted by Goal International.
Interestingly, Solskjaer also plans to give Cavani more starting opportunities.
“He is definitely a starter. You don’t classify a player with his qualities other than that. We have a lot of starters, more than 11. That’s the situation when you are at Man United,”
“You have to believe and believe in yourself. I trust him. There is a fight for a good place in our squad. He will probably start in more games,” he concluded.
