2 min read

Marcus Rashford has backed Edinson Cavani to impress at Manchester United.

The Uruguayan forward joined United on transfer deadline day following his summer departure from Paris Saint-Germain and is set to link up with the Reds squad when his period of coronavirus isolation ends on Saturday.

It is a signing that has created plenty of debate, with fans eager to see whether the 33-year-old is able to perform in the Premier League despite his advancing years.

Rashford is in no doubt that his new teammate has the talent to do well at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the United attacker argued a player like Cavani is exactly what the side need to win multiple trophies this season.

Rashford also said the signing harked back to previous United sides, who would have multiple strikers able to score goals.

“As a forward line (Cavani’s arrival) is something to look forward to,” he said.

“Hopefully he comes in and scores goals, because he can definitely help us win games and points.

“He can be a massive player for us this season.

“To win two or three trophies in a season you need a squad, it’s not possible if you don’t have people who can score goals one week and the next week, it’s just not possible without three or four forwards in a team.

“Growing up, United always had four or five forwards who could score goals at any time.

“The closer we get to that, the more strength we’ll have.”

Depending on his fitness, Cavani could well be in line to make his United debut against his former club PSG.

The two sides play each other on October 20 in their opening Champions League group match.

Cavani’s first taste of Premier League football could come against Chelsea on October 24.
