Manchester United finished the signing of Edinson Cavani on the deadline day. He was one of the surprise signings of Manchester United on the transfer deadline day. He will be wearing the iconic No. 7 jersey in Manchester United.
Edinson Cavani was a free agent this season. He left Paris Saint-Germain this June after his contract expired. The Uruguayan striker was not happy at PSG as he became irregular in the starting line-up. PSG manager Thomas Tuchel favoured Argentine striker Mauro Icardi.
Cavani joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2013. In his 7 seasons for the French Club, he has scored 200 goals in 301 appearances.
PSG and former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera said, “He asked me for advice.”
“I told him it’s one of those teams that you can’t say no to. The pity is that you will not be able to enjoy the fans. Old Trafford is unique.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solsksjaer looks very optimistic about his new striker. Ole said, “Edinson is an experienced ultimate professional who always gives everything for his team. His goalscoring record for club and country is fantastic and we are delighted to sign a player of his caliber.”
“He’ll bring energy, power, leadership, and a great mentality to the squad but, most importantly, he’ll bring goals. He has had a brilliant career so far, winning trophies at almost every club he has played for, and he still has so much more to give at the highest level.”
“The opportunity for our young players to learn from one of Europe’s top goalscorers over the last 10 years is fantastic and it will really benefit them going forward.”
“Edinson knows exactly what it takes to succeed and we are all looking forward to seeing him make an impact at Manchester United.”
Edinson Cavani is a good addition to the Manchester United squad. He is a proper centre-forward which Manchester United was lacking since last season. He will face his old club Paris Saint-Germain in a UCL tie on 20th August which could be his first match in United Jersey as well.
