Edinson Cavani’s deal with Manchester United FC is set to expire in a few months. The 33-year-old striker will have to decide whether to stay in Europe or return to South America in June.
The reports of a possible return to his native continent to join Boca Juniors have grown stronger in recent weeks. Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the other hand, is crossing his fingers that Cavani will cancel his plans to return to South America.
The Red Devils boss revealed what he wants Cavani to do this summer in an interview with Sky Sport (via Marca). With Manchester United, the Uruguayan striker has shown that he still has plenty to offer in his European career.
“[Cavani] knows my feelings; I know his feelings. He’s not made up his mind yet. I understand that it’s been a difficult year for everyone, but for a new lad who doesn’t speak English, not to feel the English culture, to see people and have friends around,” Solskjaer said.
“It’s in the back of your head if this is what you want; you know you can’t have your family over. Fingers crossed, but if he decides that it’s just this season, then we’ve been very, very fortunate to have him here.”
It will be fascinating to see if the striker continues to stay at Old Trafford for another season after saying thank you but no thanks to one of the biggest clubs in South America.
