2 min read

Edinson Cavani has agreed a one-year contract extension to stay at Manchester United next season.

The Uruguayan striker signed as a free agent last summer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expired and initially penned a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old has excelled for Ole Gunnar Solskjaerโ€™s progressive side, scoring 15 goals as part of a team that is on course to finish second in the Premier League and has reached the final of the Europa League.

โ€œOver the season, I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents,โ€ Cavani told the club website. โ€œI feel a deep bond with my team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes here. They give me extra motivation every day and I know that, together, we can achieve special things.

โ€œFrom the very first moment that I arrived, I felt the confidence of the manager. As a player, this belief gives you the perfect opportunity to play your best football and I want to thank him for that.

โ€œI have been touched with how much the supporters have wanted me to stay, and I will give everything to bring them happiness and joy with my performances on the field. Iโ€™ve not yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and that is something that I cannot wait to do.โ€
