Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to convince Edinson Cavani to extend his stay at Manchester United beyond this season after the Uruguayan played a starring role in a 3-1 win at Tottenham.
Cavani put in a brilliant shift in the number nine position, having a goal controversially ruled out before finally getting on the scoresheet with a diving header in the second half.
“Fantastic performance, we are awaiting his decision if he wants to stay or wants to move on,” Solskjaer said. “A performance like today we as a club have missed for a few years, we have not had that number nine for a long, long spell.
“Edinson has been working so hard to get fit and we can see the boys played to his strengths as well.
“We have had open and honest meetings and it’s no secret we want to keep him. I don’t think it is any secret that this has been a difficult year for everyone.
“With the pandemic, it has not been possible to have friends over, you can’t have family over without quarantine. He has not been able to experience the fantastic culture of Manchester and England and he is contemplating and thinking long and hard about what he wants to do.
“I understand. He knows what we want, I want him at Old Trafford in front of a full Stretford End scoring a header like today. Let’s wait and see.”
