There is absolutely no reason for Manchester United to target Harry Kane or Erling Haaland during the upcoming summer transfer window.
Despite serious question marks over his future, Cavani will remain at Old Trafford for another 12 months after the experienced Uruguayan, 34, put pen-to-paper on a contract extension.
It comes as United continue to be linked with high-profile moves for England captain Kane and Haaland, who has emerged as one of the hottest properties in Europe during his time at Borussia Dortmund.
Cavani, though, has underlined his own goalscoring prowess with nine goals in 12 Premier League starts for United.
It’s an eye-catching return which not only highlights what the club can look forward to next season, but Berbatov suggests it means any would-be plans to pursue Kane – or Haaland – can be put to one side.
Solskjaer can also call upon the likes of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
Speaking in his role as a Betfair ambassador, Berbatov said: “I’m very happy to see that Edinson Cavani has signed a contract extension, he absolutely deserves it. He hasn’t been given one because of his name and reputation, he has proven himself with what he has done on the pitch.

“When you are good enough, even at a certain age, you know that if you get playing time you will show what you can do. The question now is will United go out and buy another centre forward?
“For me, now they have signed Cavani up for another season, they don’t need to go out and buy another striker. If they go out and buy Harry Kane, Cavani’s contract extension will be strange.
“He wouldn’t have signed a contract extension to sit on the bench and play every now and then. They have enough striking options and I don’t think that it is necessary to go out and buy another.”
