Edinson Cavani has extended his stay at Manchester United until June 2022.
Cavani joined the Red Devils in October 2020 as a free agent.
The Uruguayan forward has had a fantastic season at Old Trafford – finding the back of the net on 15 occasions in all competitions.
“I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents,” said the 34-year-old goal poacher.
“I feel a deep bond with my team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes.
“They give me extra motivation every day and I know that together we can achieve special things.”
Meanwhile, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reckons that he always wanted Cavani to stay at the club.
“I said when Edinson signed that he would bring energy, power and leadership to this group and I haven’t been proved wrong, he has been everything I thought he would be and more,” said the club boss.
“As coaches we knew about his goalscoring record, however it is his personality that has brought so much to this squad, he has a winning mentality and has an unequivocal attitude to everything he does.
“Edinson is one of the last to leave the training ground and sets the tone for the upcoming youngsters with his approach to his profession every single day.
“I have always wanted him to stay and experience the way our fans will respond to him as a player, and this means he will hopefully get that opportunity.”
