In Summary

  • Cavani, who turned 34 last week, has scored seven times in 24 appearances this season after initially joining on a deal until the end of the current season following his release by Paris Saint-Germain in October
  • He signed a deal for one year with the option for a second and Solskjaer has confirmed discussions are now being held relating to that potential extension

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed he will hold talks with Edinson Cavani over extending his contract at Manchester United.

Cavani did not travel to Turin for United’s 4-0 Europa League win over Real Sociedad on Thursday night, with the Uruguayan striker missing out due to a “muscle injury”.

He has scored seven times in 24 appearances this season after initially joining on a deal until the end of the current season following his release by Paris Saint-Germain in October.

Cavani, who turned 34 last week – signed a deal for one year with the option for a second – and Solskjaer has confirmed discussions are now being held relating to that potential extension.

“I can only say Edinson has done well for us, I’ve been impressed with him and he’s gelled really well with the group,” Solksjaer said, who will assess Cavani’s injury in training on Saturday.

“We’ll sit down with him and speak with him in the near future, of course, to see his plans and our plans. You always speak to your players and with his contract situation, we’re very pleased with what he’s done.”
