Edinson Cavani, Man Utd’s swashbuckling goal-getter and cult hero in the making, has rejected the advances of Boca Juniors and signed a new one-year deal with United. The contract will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2022.
Cavani said: “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.
“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 have not yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and that is something that I can not wait to do. ”
