Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given nothing away on the future of Edinson Cavani but has revealed a decision will be made on the forward in the ‘near future’.
United secured the signing of the veteran forward on a free transfer during the summer following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain, Cavani having scored 200 goals in all competitions for the Parisians to become the club’s all-time leading scorer.
The Uruguay international has made a positive impact during his debut campaign in the Premier League and has scored six goals in just eight league starts, and Solskjaer admits he has been pleased with the 33-year-old’s impact.
Cavani has started the Red Devils past two Premier League fixtures and scored in the 3-3 draw with Everton earlier this month, though he missed the midweek trip to Italy to face Real Sociedad with an injury.
Cavani signed a one-year deal during the summer with the option of a one-year extension, and Solskjaer says a decision on his future will be made soon following an impressive impact upon his arrival into English football.
“I can only say Edinson has done well,” said Solskjaer at his pre-match press conference.
“I’ve been impressed by him, he’s really gelled in the group and we’ll sit down and speak with him in the near future to see his plans and ours.”
