Manchester United waiting until Edinson Cavani returns before making decision on future

Manchester United waiting until Edinson Cavani returns before making decision on future

An update on Edinson Cavani and his Manchester United future has been provided this weekend.

Cavani’s Man United stint

Manchester United signed Edinson Cavani on a free transfer during the delayed summer window.

The Uruguayan had of course previously been plying his trade with Ligue 1 powerhouse PSG.

And, despite now being 34, Cavani has since proven himself to be a very useful signing for United.

Despite spending much of his first half season at Old Trafford as an impact sub, the South American has already scored several key goals for the Manchester outfit.

For example, his haul of two goals and an assist against Southampton back in November saw the Red Devils come from behind to secure a 3-2 win.

The hitman also netted crucial goals in the club’s 2-1 win over Fulham, and 3-3 draw with Everton.

Man United waiting to make Cavani decision

However, despite having proven a solid acquisition to date, Cavani’s Manchester United future beyond the current season remains up in the air.

The Premier League giants signed him to a one-year deal, but do have the option to extend the terms for a further year.

And ESPN have now shed some light on the situation, with it claimed that the Red Devils are keen to wait until Cavani has recovered from injury before deciding his future.

The attacker has missed the club’s last three matches in all competitions, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently revealed his hope that Cavani will return against Chelsea on Sunday.

It is also claimed by ESPN that both parties have the option to terminate their time together in the summer. However, if Man United choose to do so, they will have to pay Cavani around €2m.

So, when taking into account how well he has performed to this point, perhaps the Reds would be better off keeping Cavani around for another campaign, despite his age.
