After much speculation and uncertainty in recent weeks, Edinson Cavani has finally taken a decision on his future at Manchester United.

Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani has agreed to a contract extension at Man Utd, according to reports.

The 34-year-old has scored some important goals for the Red Devils this season with the former PSG striker popping up with a late third goal in their 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Cavani has scored 15 goals and provided four assists for his Man Utd team-mates in all competitions this campaign, helping them to the Europa League final and second place in the Premier League.

There have been rumours that he could return to South America to play for Boca Juniors but journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Cavani has agreed to stay at Old Trafford.

The respected reporter claims that Cavani ‘has signed his contract extension’ at Man Utd and that an ‘official announcement is expected in the next days but the deal is done and completed’.

Cavani ‘has accepted to stay after Man Utd board and [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer were pushing to keep him’ and his new contract will run until June 2022.

He will again ‘decide his future at the end of the next season’ with Argentinian side Boca Juniors offering him a two-year deal to join them.

Given how Cavani has shown his worth to United already, this could be a good move for all parties involved
