Manchester United Opens Talk on Extension of Cavani’s contract
Manchester United are already looking to extend Edinson Cavani’s contract. The information was made known by the club’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 33-year-old Uruguay striker joined Manchester United on a one-year deal in October, with the option of a further year. He has started only one Premier League game but has scored three goals in eight games and came off the bench to create Bruno Fernandes’ goal at Leicester on Saturday.
Manchester manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he expects a new deal to be agreed. He said: “Edinson has a few years left in him so I wouldn’t say anything else,” said Solskjaer.” He also said: “He has made a great impact and I trust him.” “He is definitely a starter,” said the Norwegian.
“You don’t classify a player of that quality as anything else. I trust him and he will probably start more games than he won’t.” When asked about the number seven jersey he said: “It was the first thing he asked me, if he could wear the number seven,” said Solskjaer.
“Obviously we are talking about the history of the shirt but when you think of his career, the experience he has had and his personality from the chat I had with him and when I watched him before, it wasn’t in doubt that he could handle it.”
