Man United land Cavani
Manchester United, on the back of a quiet window overall, had a pretty busy deadline day.
In total, the Red Devils managed to land four new players on Monday, including Alex Telles, Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri.
Perhaps the most high-profile of their latest batch of additions, though, came in the form of veteran hitman, Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan made the move to Old Trafford on a free transfer, after his PSG contract expired over the summer:

Cavani set to miss out for Man United vs Newcastle
Having managed to find the net 200 times in 301 appearances during his stint with PSG, United fans are no doubt eager to see the 33-year-old in action.
And with Anthony Martial suspended after being sent off vs Tottenham last weekend, the Red Devils will, of course, need to call upon another to fill the void left by the Frenchman in their next Premier League clash.
This clash is set to take place on Saturday the 17th of October, and will see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men make the trip to St. James’ Park.
Unfortunately for United, though, they will not be able to call upon their new hitman for the trip to Newcastle.
This comes as a result of the current quarantine rules in place across the UK.
As per the Telegraph, anyone arriving in the UK from France is currently required to self-isolate for 14 days.
As such, as Cavani only arrived on Sunday, his quarantine period will not be up until October 18th – the day after United’s meeting with Newcastle:
