Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club will hold talks with Edinson Cavani over extending his stay at Old Trafford.
Cavani missed Thursday night’s 4-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Europa League with a muscle problem.
But he has scored seven times in 24 appearances this season, after initially joining a loan deal until the end of this season.
However, the Uruguayan international has the option for a second year and Solskjaer has confirmed that discussions are now underway for a possible extension.
Speaking ahead of United home game against Newcastle United on Sunday confirmed the news on Cavani’s future.
“I can only say Edinson has done well for us. I’ve been impressed with him and he’s gelled really well with the group. Said Solskjaer.
“We’ll sit down with him and speak with him in the near future, of course, to see his plans and our plans. You always speak to your players and with his contract situation, we’re very pleased with what he’s done,”
