Cavani yes, Haaland no

Edinson Cavani has returned by virtue of his privileges in recent weeks in Manchester. The Uruguayan lived a summer of tough negotiations with a multitude of teams from Europe until he decided to sign with the Red Devils. After years of goals and more goals in Paris, although the last one marked by injuries, Edi has had its peaks and valleys. He was sanctioned, had minor blows and injuries and also coronavirus.

The one from Salto has decided to end the losing streak at a crucial moment of the season for United by chaining vital goals against Tottenham in the Premier, which could have been a double if not for the intervention of the VAR, and against him Granada to close a first-level tie by the Mancunians with four goals in favor and zero against. Cavani killed the Nasrids' hopes by scoring with less than five minutes remaining.

In addition to improving his data, which remain short for what he used to throughout his career (30 games, nine goals), the Uruguayan does seem to have achieved a favorable current of opinion that this Thursday led on televisions Owen Hargreaves, former player Manchester United and now a contributor to BT Sports.

“You have to stay with him. He is a great scorer and has a good ratio of goals per minute. He is the best in that sense.. We would all like to have Kane or Haaland, but having Cavani, is it necessary to spend 100 million on a player? United need a right back, a midfielder and a central defender. If Cavani had played more, I have no doubt that he would already have 25 goals. In addition, he is a good tutor for Rashford, Martial and Greenwood “, ensures that he was 'red devil' with Sir Alex Ferguson between 2007 and 2011.

With his future up in the air and ringing for a possible return to South American football, Hargreaves asks United for an effort. This line was joined by a heavyweight from the Old Trafford dressing room, Bruno Fernandes, who defended the Uruguayan and added that he is a forward “who has everything.” “We know who Cavani is and everything he does. He is a striker who has everything,” said the Portuguese.

Cavani's performance this season with United

With that role as a teacher for Carrington's best students and also as an excellent attacking resource, Cavani is called upon to continue at United next season. Bruno and Hargreaves, the most recent, were also joined by his two teachers: the current one and one of those who know him best.

Solskajer has already assured that the club wants to retain him and Tabárez, Uruguay's coach, also recommended that he stay, according to the country's press. Cavani will be the one to make the decision, but everyone wants to keep seeing him dressed as a devil.
