Cavani looked to be heading out of Old Trafford after just one season in England when his father revealed last month that he has set his heart on a move to Boca Juniors in Argentina.
It’s understood the 34-year-old Uruguay striker is unsure over how much he will play at United and is also still unhappy over a three-match ban and £100,000 fine from the FA for using the word ‘negrito’ in a social media post.

But Solskjaer insists that talks are continuing over Cavani staying at United for another year with the former Paris Saint-Germain striker yet to make up his mind.
‘I’ve kept in touch with Edi of course,’ said the United manager. ‘We keep an open dialogue and he’s still unsure what he wants to do next season, which I find fine.
‘It’s not been easy year either for him or the rest of the world, this season, so he still wants time to make his mind up.

‘I’m very sure we will get the good version of Edinson for the rest of the season. He knows this is the business end of season, where we fight for the Europa League trophy and we can see the end line in the league.
‘There are only eight games left and you’re thinking about where you’re going to end up.
‘He’s been so positive in and around the place, he’s been great to have. He’s been working hard now to get fit and we’ve got him. Now hopefully we can keep him fit for the next six or seven weeks.’
