Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has no plans of leaving the club midway through the campaign.



The Uruguay international joined the Red Devils on a free transfer last summer, and had a productive debut season with 17 goals and six assists.

He has made just one appearance this term amid injuries, but he is also no longer a guaranteed starter up front.

Cristiano Ronaldo made a surprise return to United after 12 years, and he has immediately become the go-to striker.

Cavani may have to settle for minutes off the bench this term, but ESPN claims that he is not concerned by the situation.

The striker's contract expires at the end of the campaign. He will honour the 10 months left before leaving the club.

Cavani has been ruled out of the Premier League clash against West Ham United on Sunday with a muscle strain.

However, the 34-year-old could return for the midweek Carabao Cup third-round tie against the same opposition.
