Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed the club will hold talks with Edinson Cavani over extending his stay.
Cavani missed Thursday night’s 4-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Europa League with a muscle problem.
But he has netted seven times in 24 appearances this season, after initially joining on a deal until the end of this season.
Cavani who turned 34 last week, however, has the option for a second year and Solskjaer has confirmed discussions are now being held relating to that potential extension.
“I can only say Edinson has done well for us. I’ve been impressed with him and he’s gelled really well with the group.
“We’ll sit down with him and speak with him in the near future, of course, to see his plans and our plans. You always speak to your players and with his contract situation, we’re very pleased with what he’s done,” Solskjaer said ahead of United’s home game against Newcastle United on Sunday.
