As we previously anticipated, Edinson Cavani signed a new contract with Manchester United and we finally got his reaction to it.
Edinson Cavani has dramatically improved his game as a Manchester United player and he just signed a new contract with the club. We initially told you this was about to happen in the coming hours and the reports were correct. Edinson will keep on playing at Old Trafford for one more season at least. If he continues playing at the highest level, he will definitely think about extending his contract for one more year.
This is a very similar situation to the one Zlatan Ibrahimovic is going through. Although Cavani actually has a chance to win a title this season where Zlatan couldn’t help AC Milan. In fact, the Uruguay international was almost entirely responsible for Manchester United’s chance to win the UEFA Europa League this season. His performances for the Red Devils have been nothing short of spectacular.
Cavani hopes this extension brings him more titles.
Manchester United’s website announced Cavani’s decision and they also documented his reaction after the announcement: “Over the season, I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents. I feel a deep bond with my team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes here. They give me extra motivation every day and I know that, together, we can achieve special things.
“From the very first moment that I arrived, I felt the confidence of the manager. As a player, this belief gives you the perfect opportunity to play your best football and I want to thank him for that. I have been touched with how much the supporters have wanted me to stay, and I will give everything to bring them happiness and joy with my performances on the field. I’ve not yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and that is something that I cannot wait to do.”
