‘Cavani making up for lost time’


Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants striker Edinson Cavani to stay at the club for another season.

The Uruguay international joined Man United on a one-year deal in October, with the option of an additional 12 months.

However, it has been reported that the 34-year-old is undecided about whether to remain in England after a difficult first year.

When he arrived in England, he had to spend time in isolation and then got banned for three matches by the Football Association for a controversial social media post, which was deemed offensive – racist.

The striker scored a brace and secured three assists in Man United’s 6-2 Europa League semi-final first-leg victory over Roma at home and Solskjaer says he is trying hard to keep Cavani at the club.

“He knows my feelings. He knows I would love to have him here,” said Solskjaer.

“Edinson is more than just a goal poacher. He is excellent at running the channels, being the focal point and bringing others into play.

“He is making up for lost time and I am delighted with him. Hopefully we will see him here for another year. I am doing my best. I promised him Old Trafford is a different place with fans.

“Cavani must try to get that feeling, to be on our side. Manchester is a fantastic place to live. Of course nights like this, hopefully we can get to the final and hopefully he can see himself being here for another year.”

Cavani has now scored 12 goals this season, a tally exceeded only by Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
