Manchester United coach Ralph Rangnick has expressed interest in keeping Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani on the squad, pointing out that he will not be allowed to leave the team this month in the winter transfer market.
Cavani, 34, has scored 19 goals in 49 appearances for the team since joining Paris Saint-Germain in October 2020, according to British news agency PA Media.
Gavani has been seriously considering leaving Old Trafford at the end of last season, but has agreed to another year’s contract, but talks about the senior striker’s future have only increased recently.
In January, it was reported that Barcelona would sign Uruguay’s international striker, but Rangnick expected the player to stay for the rest of his contract.
“We have had some conversations with him over the last two weeks,” he said before the Premier League clash with Manchester United coach Wolverhamptonn, which is scheduled for Monday.
“I told him from my first day here that he was a very important player.
“He’s probably the only player who can play with his face on his back or towards the goal as a striker,” Ranknick continued.
The German coach explained: “The professionalism he has and his work ethic are amazing. I told him I loved him so much until the end of the season, and he knew it.”
He said: “He knows how much I admire and respect him, which is why I started him against Burnley with Cristiano Ronaldo.”
