Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has agreed to extend his stay at Old Trafford. The former PSG man joined Manchester United as a free agent on a one-year deal last summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, following weeks of negotiations with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club’s hierarchy, Edinson Cavani has agreed to extend his contract with Manchester United.

The 34-year-old has been in imperious form in recent weeks, scoring seven goals in his last six games for the Red Devils. His latest goal for the team was in their 3-1 success over Aston Villa on Sunday, which took his tally to nine for the season in the Premier League. Cavani has also scored five goals in just four games in the Europa League.

Apart from his incredible form in front of goal, Cavani has proven himself to be the ideal mentor for several of the club’s youngsters. Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Daniel James have all spoken about the Uruguayan’s willingness to help them develop into top-quality forwards.

Manchester United will be hoping the former PSG man continues his splendid form as they approach the climax of the 2020-21 campaign. The Red Devils will face Villarreal in the final of the Europa League on May 27.

Their clash with Unai Emery’s side is the first final that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has progressed to during his reign at Manchester United. The Norwegian will be hoping that a victory over Villarreal will lead to his first trophy as Manchester United’s manager.
