Edinson Cavani wants to leave a ‘positive’ legacy behind at Manchester United

Edinson Cavani’s future has been up in the air for some time, but the Uruguayan striker says he is eager to leave “something positive behind” at Manchester United.

From being a prolific striker at Napoli between 2010 and 2013 to joining PSG, where he spent 7 years became the club’s all-time record goalscorer.

The 34-year-old joined United on a Bosman after his contract with PSG expired at the end of last season. He joined on a one-year deal and his contract includes an option for a further year.

He told the club’s official magazine that he is “very happy” after seeing United’s young players learn from him.

“Honestly speaking, I don’t really like to just give out advice. I’m just here to do my absolute best and to support this team and to leave everything I have out on the field, whether that’s in a game or a training session.

“Then, if a young player comes up and asks me something or they see me do things during a training session that they’d like to incorporate into their game, then that’s great.

“I believe that there are lessons all around you, not just from players in your own position.

“You can always take the best bits from someone else and see if they work for you in your own game.

“If they want to take something I say or do on board and take it as an example to use in their future development, then I’d be very happy, because it’s important to leave something positive behind.”

Cavani doesn’t give too much away on his future, amid links to Boca Juniors.

If he stays it would take a huge amount of pressure off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the summer transfer window. United can then focus on signing a centre-back and hopefully a right winger.

  1. I like the way he (Cavani) played and teaches young ones in the pitch and I urge that United should keep him.
