2 min read

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Edinson Cavani on a free transfer.

Cavani, 33, was out-of-contract after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season following seven years in France.

The Uruguay international has signed a one-year-deal at Old Trafford and United have the option to extend his stay for a further season.

Cavani won six Ligue 1 titles with PSG and lifted the Copa America with his country back in 2011.

Cavani said: ” Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, so it is a real honour to be here. I’ve worked really hard during the time off and I feel eager to compete and represent this incredible club.

“I look forward to continuing to write my little story inside the book of football and I know that’s why my focus has to remain the same as always – work, work, work. I have had a conversation with the manager and this has increased my desire to wear this beautiful shirt.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Edinson is an experienced ultimate professional who always gives everything for his team. His goalscoring record for club and country is fantastic and we are delighted to sign a player of his calibre.
