(Video) Solskjaer confirms contract talks planned with star attacker

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club have plans to sit down with striker Edinson Cavani in the near future to discuss the possibility of a one-year extension.

Cavani, 34, joined the Red Devils last summer on a one-year deal with the club retaining the option to extend by another year.

Despite enjoying a brilliant start to life at Old Trafford, the club have so far failed to activate the South American’s contractual clause, leaving fans wondering if they’ll get to see their star marksman in action next season.

Speaking ahead of his side’s domestic tie against Newcastle United on the weekend, Solskjaer has confirmed that the club do in fact plan on opening talks with the Uruguayan.

“I can only say Edinson has done well,” Solskjaer said. “I have been impressed by him.

“He’s really gelled in the group and we’ll sit down with him and speak with him, of course, in the new future, to see his plans and our plans.

“It’s a good discussion to always speak to your players and with his contract situation at the moment, we’re very pleased with what he’s done.”
