Manchester United are willing to offer Edinson Cavani a new contract to keep him at Old Trafford beyond this season, but the club wants to wait for him return from injury before that happens.

As it is, the Uruguayan is unlikely to play against Chelsea this Sunday, after picking up a knock recently.

However, having been impressed with his overall contribution to the team, the club’s hierarchy want to extend his contract, with his current deal set to expire in June.

Cavani has scored 7 goals across all competitions for Man United this season, and has been a big influence on younger players at the club.

Olé Gunnar Solskjaer recently confirmed talks will be held to decide the players future, but it’s unlikely he’ll be allowed to leave, with the type of impact he’s had.

If United do decide to let Cavani go, we will have to pay him €2 million, although like we said, we can’t see that happening.
