Keane hails Cavani signing by United

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hailed the Red Devils' decision to sign Edinson Cavani on a free transfer.



The Uruguay international has made a slow beginning to his Red Devils career, but he showed his worth at Southampton where he paved the way for the comeback win.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were trailing 2-0 at the interval and Cavani made the difference off the bench with two goals and an assist as the club sealed a memorable 3-2 triumph.

The victory brought back memories of Robin van Persie at the club and Keane believes Cavani could turn out to be a huge signing for the Mancunian giants.

"We've seen clips of him in some other games and we thought, 'Has he still got it?', but we've seen proof of it today, he could turn out to be a huge signing for United. It's worked out well today," He told Sky Sports.

United have won three Premier League games on the bounce and that has propelled them to eighth on the table. They are currently five points behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand.
