Paul Ince ‘can see’ Edinson Cavani leaving Manchester United at the end of the season and thinks a variety of factors will contribute to his departure.

While the former Manchester United and Liverpool midfielder believes the Uruguay international has been a ‘revelation’ since coming through the doors at Old Trafford, he suspects Cavani will feel his game time will be limited next season.

With his Manchester United team-mates in excellent form in his absence in a 2-0 win in the Manchester derby, Ince suspects he may be concerned he will be fazed out of the team.

Ince also suggested that Cavani’s three-match ban for a social media post may have increased his desire to leave, with Boca Juniors thought to be the favourites to sign him.

While Cavani has said he is happy in Manchester, his father insisted the opposite is true and Ince suspects the former Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli striker’s time in the Premier League is up.

‘Cavani has come in and he’s been a revelation,’ Ince told TalkSport.

‘I know we talk about Fernandes coming in and being very, very good, but Cavani he’s a natural goalscorer.

‘As well as Martial and Rashford can do upfront, when you talk about natural goalscorers, Cavani has showed that when he plays, the runs he makes, he knows where the space is and knows how to score.

‘Whether he decides to stay or not I don’t know.

‘When you look at the team against Manchester City and how they played he might be thinking “well, is this the way they’re going to go next year, am I going to get as many games? I’m not getting any younger”.

‘I can see him going. All this social media stuff has not gone down well, it’s a little bit pathetic to be fair, and I can see why Cavani is a little upset about it.

‘All the angles look like he will go, but hopefully he’ll leave with a few more goals in the back of the net for United.’
