Don’t force Cavani to stay, Keane urges Man Utd

Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, feels Edinson Cavani should be allowed to leave this summer.

While he’s been deadly of late, the Uruguay international’s long-term future at Old Trafford is currently up in the air.

Boca Juniors want to bring the forward back to South America, despite Cavani only arriving in England last year.

And Keane, speaking to Sky Sports, feels United shouldn’t keep Cavani because the veteran can’t be relied on.

“I kind of hope that they don’t keep him, because then they might look and think we don’t need to go and get another (striker),” he said.

“He’s 34, if you’re hanging your hat on Cavani next year to getting United back to winning league titles, forget about it.

“He’ll be a back-up striker and he won’t want to be a back-up striker, so that’s why he’ll be reluctant to sign a new contract and there’s obviously family reasons behind it.

“We were here a few months ago watching Man City against United and saying there was no way City were going to win the title, but Pep Guardiola deserves credit.”
