34-year-old striker Edinson Cavani looks set to stay a Manchester United player after club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that new contract discussion have already begun with the player. The former Paris St Germain striker has caught the eye since making a move to United on a free transfer.

Cavani, who has impressed in the Premier League in recent weeks, joined United on a short term deal, but the club are hoping to extend that in to the 2021-22 campaign.

Solskjaer told the press: “I can only say Edinson has done well for us, I’ve been impressed with him and he’s gelled really well with the group.

“We’ll sit down with him and speak with him in the near future, of course, to see his plans and our plans.

“You always speak to your players and with his contract situation, we’re very pleased with what he’s done.”

It is understood that Cavani is currently on a deal of around £185,000 a week, and wants at least £200,000 to extend his deal for another season.
