Manchester United have completed the transfer of Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani. The former Paris Saint-Germain man was out of contract in June and has been at the forefront of a number of transfer plans. The 33-year-old has joined United on a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

Cavani left things in Paris rather awkwardly, after a disagreement with fans’ favourite Neymar. However, he is ready to kick on with the Red Devils and believes he still has a lot to offer.

Age is Just a Number for New Arrival Edinson Cavani

United are not concerned about Cavani’s age and neither is he. The club believe he will have nothing but a positive influence on the club’s younger players. At 33 years-old, the Uruguayan forward still believes he has many years at the highest level in his locker. He has scored 341 goals in 556 club games, and will certainly be ready for the rigours of the Premier League.

Senior figures at United have not forgotten Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s effect when he joined the club as aย  34-year-old. And, it is expected that Cavani will provide an experienced alternative to United’s talented attacking trio of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

Cavani Transfer Remains Within Current Pay Structure

The addition of Cavani does not go beyond the current pay structure set at United. So, United fans will not be concerned in the same way they were, with the acquisition of ยฃ350,000-a-week man Alexis Sanchez, who failed to justify has mammoth wages.

United Set for Widespread Criticism

Despite the signing of Cavani, United are braced for some criticism over the whole Jadon Sancho saga. The Red Devils’ pursuit for the young Englishman has been a tiresome back and forth battle, but with little progress. United have seen a couple of bids rejected by Borussia Dortmund for the 20-year-old, who are eager to keep the star.

The Reds remain far away from the German clubs’ valuation. With time running out for them, it remains unseen whether they will succumb to Dortmund’s demands.
