Solskjaer: Man Utd set to extend Cavani’s contract

Manchester United are already looking to extend Edinson Cavani’s contract, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Uruguay striker, 33, joined on a one-year deal in October, with the option of a further year.

He has started only one Premier League game but has scored three goals in eight games and came off the bench to create Bruno Fernandes’ goal at Leicester on Saturday.

Solskjaer said he expects a new deal to be agreed upon.

“Edinson has a few years left in him so I wouldn’t say anything else,” said Solskjaer. “He has made a great impact and I trust him.”

Solskjaer said he sees the former Paris St-Germain and Napoli forward as more than just an impact substitute.

“He is definitely a starter,” said the Norwegian.

“You don’t classify a player of that quality as anything else. I trust him and he will probably start more games than he won’t.”
