Manchester United 'have no plans to sell Edinson Cavani after Cristiano Ronaldo arrival'

It's time to prove if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a great coach now he has all the support he needed to win England Premier League 

Manchester United reportedly have no plans to sell Edinson Cavani this summer, following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.

The Red Devils announced on Friday afternoon that they have agreed a deal with the Serie A giants to re-sign the 36-year-old forward, 12 years after he left Old Trafford for Real Madrid.

Despite strong links suggesting that crosstown rivals Manchester City were close to signing the Portuguese international, the Premier League champions pulled out of the race, leaving a clear pathway for United to swoop in for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has a plethora of attacking options at his disposal, but according to the Manchester Evening News, the Norwegian head coach is keen to keep Cavani as part of his squad this season.

The Uruguayan striker has just one year left on his current contract, which he extended at the backend of last season.

Cavani, who is in contention to feature for the first time this season against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, made 39 appearances across all competitions for United during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 17 goals and providing six assists.
