Edinson Cavani forced to wait for Manchester United debut due to UK quarantine rules

The Uruguay international officially joined the Manchester United on transfer deadline day, and Utd fans have thought that they would likely watch their new striker next weekend against Leeds United as Anthony Martial serving a suspension by getting a red card in the previous game.

However, according to The Times, former PSG striker could be forced to wait to turn out for Manchester United as, under government guidelines, anyone arriving in the United Kingdom from France will have to quarantine for 14 days due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The major part of football players are released from the rule, but the striker left Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer and has therefore been living with various family members that mean he is likely to have to self-isolate at home for the next match and have to wait for his debut, missing the Newcastle match in the process.

Cavani, who has been given the no. seven shirt at Old Trafford with likes of Beckham, C.Ronaldo, Depay and could therefore make his debut against former club PSG in the Champions League on October 20.

The South American tested positive for coronavirus earlier this summer following a trip to Ibiza.
