Reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has said that Manchester United will do ‘everything they can’ to keep Edinson Cavani at the club next season.
The Uruguay international joined the Red Devils on a free transfer last summer, and he has been a quality performer with 12 goals and four assists from just 1760 minutes.
The 34-year-old has struggled with fitness issues over the course of the campaign but when fit, he has displayed his quality leading the line.
Amidst this, Romano has cited that United are doing everything within their reach to keep hold of the former Paris Saint-Germain star.
Cavani’s contract could be extended for another season through a clause, and United are likely to trigger the option in the coming weeks.
There have been suggestions that Cavani wants to return to South America, and a move to Boca Juniors has been regularly touted in recent months.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on convincing him to stay, and Cavani is likely to decide on his future after speaking with his family.
Manchester United will do ‘everything they can’ to keep Edinson Cavani. The board and everyone in the club want Edi to stay – as they told him in last meeting. Solskjaer is pushing with the player. 🔴 #MUFC
