Edinson Cavani has been instrumental in Manchester United’s improved form this season, as the Uruguayan has scored 6 goals in 17 appearances for the Red Devils in the league. Having arrived on a free transfer in October, the striker has gone on to forge a brilliant partnership with Rashford and Martial to help United score more goals.
The former Paris Saint-Germain striker signed a one year contract with Manchester United, with the option to extend it for another year. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that the club are in talks with the striker to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
The United manager said “I can only say Edinson has done well for us, I’ve been impressed with him and he’s gelled really well with the group.“
“We’ll sit down with him and speak with him in the near future, of course, to see his plans and our plans. You always speak to your players and with his contract situation, we’re very pleased with what he’s done.“
On United’s ambitions
The Norwegian admitted his side were guilty of dropping points against Everton and West Brom, and said that they would try to put pressure on toppers Manchester City by remaining in second position.
The United manager added “We can’t hide the fact that we’ve dropped off our form a bit in recent weeks, and we’ve dropped points when we shouldn’t have done.”
“We are second and of course your ambition then is to not end any lower than that, so we are going to have to put a good run together if we want to put any pressure on City this season.”
