Despite Edinson Cavani’s father’s desire to return to South America, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says no decision has been taken on the striker’s future.
Following a three-match suspension for using a racially derogatory word earlier this season, Luis Cavani told Argentinian broadcaster TyC Sports this week that his son “doesn’t feel safe” in Manchester.
The punishment imposed by the Football Association was characterized by Luis Cavani as “nonsense.” He also said that the Uruguay international had a “60 percent” chance of returning to South America and that he was “moving towards” a move to Boca Juniors.
While Cavani’s future is uncertain, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with the impact the former PSG striker has made since arriving on a one-year contract in October, and has hinted that his stay could be extended.”
I can’t speak about what’s been said; all I can suggest is that we’re really happy with Edinson.” “He’s just assisting the little men, which is just what we expected him to do,” Solskjaer said.”
We suspected he wouldn’t be able to participate in any game. In his attitude, he aids the rest of the party. He’ll make his decision, and he should know that we appreciate everything he’s contributed to the club, even if he’s actually played fewer games than he’d like.
“Edinson’s fully focused on being available for us and working really hard to get fit. He’s very proud to play for Man Utd.
“He’ll really put in his utmost effort. If it extends past this season, no decision has been taken. As previously said, he has made a significant impact so far. When the weather in Manchester improves, we’ll persuade him!”
Marcus Rashford is likely to miss United’s Europa League round-of-16 first leg against AC Milan on Thursday, according to Solskjaer, who suffered an ankle injury in the win over Manchester City on Sunday.
Solskjaer also said that David de Gea, Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, Cavani, and Juan Mata are all doubtful for Sunday’s game against West Ham.
