What Cavani has said about his future amid Man Utd talks

2 min read

Edinson Cavani has emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester United.

The 33-year-old striker is a free agent after leaving previous club Paris Saint-Germain.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to be keen to add to his attacking options before Monday’s transfer deadline.

And it is understood that initial talks have been held with Cavani after his services were offered to the club.

The Uruguayan international does not fall into United’s philosophy of signing the best young talents.

However, he comes with an impressive pedigree, having scored 200 goals in 301 appearances for PSG.

A planned move to Atletico Madrid failed to materialise when his contract expired.

But Cavani himself believes he still has plenty to offer – and expects to continue playing for some time yet.

Speaking in May, before leaving PSG, he told the club’s official magazine: “My career will last for maybe several years still, here or elsewhere, I don’t know.”

Of course, we now know it will be elsewhere.

Cavani added: “I’ve spoken about it a lot with my entourage. I’ve always said that I would like to quit football rather than football quitting me.

“I’d really like to finish having given everything. To get to that point where I’d say: ‘Guys, this is the point where I have to go’.

“I don’t want life to lead me to play when I wouldn’t be capable of giving my best.

“The day will come where it will be obvious that the time’s come to move on to something else.”
