The former Psg hitman who arrived as a free agent last summer to United would see his one year contract at the club expire during the end of the season with him and the Manchester United board yet to finalize on any agreement to extend his stay at the club.
Edison cavani has always been known for his immense prolific record in front of goal and during his stay at psg he was Consistent in providing the french club with 30 goals per Season this season he has only been able to get 7 goals in 26 appearances for Manchester United in the premier league.
Most times this season the Uruguay forward has been used mostly as a substitute with ole preferring Anthony Martial who has only been able to get 4 goals in 22 appearances this season in the premier league to the Uruguayan forward.
We would be discussing 4 Reasons why we think Edison cavani deserves a bumper new contract at Manchester United despite the little amount of playing time given to him this season.
1. Experience: Cavani is a prolific Goal scorer and his experience would greatly help develop the young attacking players like Daniel James, Amad Daillo and Mason Greenwood as they would learn first hand from the best in the game.
2. Positional ability: When it comes to positioning in the 18 yard box cavani is an expert in that, little wonder is the reason he has been able to accumulate 360 career club goals in 612 appearances (stats according to Wikipedia).
3. Goal Scoring Prowress: Despite him playing less this season Edison cavani is Manchester United third highest goal scorer for the season with 7 goals with him behind Bruno Fernandes (23 goals) and Marcus Rashford (18 goals) he is a big game player and would be vital to Manchester United quest in winning trophies.
4. Relatively Cheap Wages: A big name player like Edison cavani isn’t someone you see on a €210,000 per week wages, Manchester United could take advantage of that and give him an extra year even though they have an option to extend his stay at the club for 12 extra months.
Edison Cavani is one player Manchester United would not want to lose as a player of his experience and ruthlessness in front of goal is hard to come by easily as other clubs now see Manchester United interest in their players as a way of scheming money off them by overpricing seemingly average players way above their market value.
