Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Edinson Cavani still has several years left as a striker and is keen to extend the Uruguayan’s time at Old Trafford.
The 33-year-old signed a one-year deal in September after months without a club since leaving French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Solskjaer suggested that he expects Man United to extend Cavani’s contract for another season. “At the moment he looks like he has a few years left in him so I wouldn’t say anything else,” said Solskjaer.
“He’s been a great influence and has made a great impact since he’s come here.”
Cavani has scored four goals in 13 appearances for Man United and came off the bench to set up Bruno Fernandes’s goal in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City
However, Solskjaer dismissed suggestions Cavani’s role will be that of an impact substitute.
“He’s definitely a starter. You don’t classify a player of that quality as anything else. He’ll probably start more games that he will not start,” added Solskjaer.
“He’s so meticulous and professional with his habits, everything about him shows why he’s had the career he’s had and, at the age he’s now, he’s still one of the fittest players we’ve got.”
