Solskjaer gets his man
Manchester United fans will be delighted with the news following a terrific debut season from the former PSG man. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made no secret of his desire to secure Cavani’s services for beyond this current season following an impressive spell at the club. His 14 goals in all competitions have gone some way in fixing the ‘Number 7 shirt curse’ and more importantly, have helped the club to a Europa League Final.
Following West Ham’s defeat to Everton on Sunday, United have also secured a second top four finish in a row, the first time they’ve achieved this feat since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013. Thankfully for United, Cavani’s fairly slow start to life in Manchester has sprung into life in the past few months. Scoring 8 goals and getting 3 assists in his last 7 appearances for the club, including hitting 4 goals past Roma during their 8-5 Quarter Final victory over two legs. Following the win, Solskjaer said:
“I understand it’s been very difficult for him. I’ve promised him Old Trafford and Manchester is a different place with fans in it. He must try to get that feeling that Manchester is a good place to live. I’m doing my best. Hopefully, nights like this help him see himself here for another year.”
Fresh off another goal scoring performance against Villa, United fans can look forward to seeing their number 7 next season. Meanwhile, Cavani can look forward to playing in front of a packed Stretford End.
