The Uruguayan striker became a free player since early June. But it took Manchester United four months to recruit him. MU seems to only find Cavani after the beginning of the season is not impressive. They don’t have a clear plan in the transfer market.
In the opposite direction, Cavani does not consider MU a priority club. Following are the failed negotiations with Atletico Madrid or Benfica. Cavani’s level is undisputed. He is the striker to score the most goals in PSG history with 200 goals.
Cavani shows talent in Europe’s top arenas. However, at 33, Cavani will have to adapt to the tournament and new teammates. MU probably only recruited Cavani because he was a free player.
This deal is almost like the Odion Ighalo contract at the winter market of 2020. MU is trying to be smarter in the transfer market with cheap but experienced contracts.
In fact, the MU attacker currently lacks an experienced striker like Cavani. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford or Greenwood are not real strikers. Meanwhile, Odion Ighalo has excess enthusiasm but lacks class. The poor performance of the Nigerian striker in the League Cup bothered coach Ole Solskjaer.
Cavani looks perfect for Solsa. Since coming to Europe to play football, Cavani has scored 341 goals and 65 assists in 556 games. The Uruguayan striker will bring MU attack experience, class as well as many plans to attack.
MU’s young players can also learn from Cavani. MU signed a 2-year contract with Cavani, according to Solsa’s desire to create conditions for young players to develop.
However, Giggs did not forget to remind MU fans of Radamel Falcao. How big was Di Maria or Alexis Sanchez was expected at Old Trafford. The failure of the aforementioned stars created an indelible charm for Cavani at Manchester United.
For many years, Manchester United’s locker room has often not been good at tolerating South American stars. Culture, gameplay and even weather will bring many barriers for Cavani.
