Edinson Cavani extends Man United stay with one-year deal



United’s Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani has
signed a one-year contract extension at the Old Trafford outfit
having hit a purple patch in recent matches, the Premier league
club said on Monday.
Free agent Cavani arrived at United on a one-year contract in
October with an option of another 12 months but was
undecided about his future after a difficult start to life at the
club after a social media faux pas resulted in a three-game

The former Paris St Germain forward’s father had said in
March that the player was uncomfortable in England and
wanted to return to South America, having held talks with
Boca Juniors president Juan Roman Riquelme about signing
for the club.

However, Cavani overcame his early issues to take his goal tally
for United to 15 from 35 games in all competitions so far, with
eight goals in seven matches including one in Sunday’s 3-1
league win over ASton Villa.

“Over the season, I’ve developed a great affection for the club
and everything it represents,” Cavani said in a statement. “I feel
a deep bond with my team mates and the staff who work
behind the scenes here. They give me extra motivation every
day and I know that, together, we can achieve special things.
“From the very first moment I arrived, I felt the confidence of
the manager. As a player, this belief gives you the perfect

opportunity to play your best football and I want to thank him
for that.
“I have been touched with how much the supporters have
wanted me to stay, and I will give everything to bring them
happiness and joy with my performances on the field. I’ve not
yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and
that is something that I cannot wait to do.”
