Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has signed a new one year deal with the club.
The experienced Uruguayan striker has been linked with a move away from the Old Trafford stadium at the end of the current season.
However after a decent performance in recent weeks the Man Utd hierarchy has ensured he extend his contract which was due to expire at the end of the season.
Cavani expressed his delight on the new deal and has this to say,
“Over the season, I have developed a great affection for the club and everything that it represents. I feel a deep bond with my team-mates and the staff who work behind the scenes here. They give me extra motivation every day and I know that, together, we can achieve special things.
“From the very first moment that I arrived, I felt the confidence of the manager. As a player, this belief gives you the perfect opportunity to play your best football and I want to thank him for that.
“I have been touched with how much the supporters have wanted me to stay, and I will give everything to bring them happiness and joy with my performances on the field. I’ve not yet been able to play in front of the Old Trafford crowd and that is something that I cannot wait to do.”
