Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, has signed a contract extension with Manchester United which would keep him at the club until June 2022.
The 34 year old striker who has been in excellent form, enjoyed lots of successful appearances for United this season, and scored a total of eight goals in seven matches.
According to Cavani, he had “developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents,” and he “feel a deep bond with team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes.”
“They give me extra motivation every day and I know that together we can achieve special things.”
After he joined United on a free transfer in October 2020, Cavani has gone on to score 15 goals across all competitions for United, with his goal in the 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday being the latest.
Speaking on Cavani’s decision to extend his stay at United, Ole Gunnar Solskjær said “I said when Edinson signed that he would bring energy, power and leadership to this group and I haven’t been proved wrong, he has been everything I thought he would be and more.”
“As coaches we knew about his goalscoring record, however it is his personality that has brought so much to this squad, he has a winning mentality and has an unequivocal attitude to everything he does.
“Edinson is one of the last to leave the training ground and sets the tone for the upcoming youngsters with his approach to his profession every single day.
“I have always wanted him to stay and experience the way our fans will respond to him as a player, and this means he will hopefully get that opportunity.”
