Manchester United are having a tough time and are languishing at 16th place with 3 points from 3 games, the last being a 1-6 humiliation at Old Trafford by Spurs team. Cavani is a proven goal scorer in European football and his knowledge would be of great help to United young players. His goal scoring record is equally good for both club and country.
At 33 will he be able to maintain his fitness for Premier League which is very demanding that will be seen. He is a passionate and hardworking player and works tirelessly on and off the ball and will be a driving force behind Rashford, Van Beek and Greenwood. If he is able to replicate his past performances he could be a big asset for United’s struggling team.
