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 Solskjaer’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.
“Over the season, I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents,” Cavani told the club website. “I 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.
“From 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.
“I 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. I’ve not yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and that is something that I cannot wait to do.”
