According to reports, Manchester United chiefs have held showdown talks with summer signing Edinson Cavani.

The 34-year-old has been a valuable addition to to the team, and hasn’t been fit for the most part of the season, but he has still managed to notch up six goals and two assists in the Premier League this season.

Cavani’s future at the club has been uncertain since being charged by the FA for using a racial term in an Instagram post, of which he believed he wasn’t guilty of.

Cavani has had a good impact at the club, but is keen on a move to South America as his United future remains uncertain.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, United’s newly-appointed director of football, John Murtough, and executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward, have held showdown talks with the player at around midday on Tuesday at Carrington.

Cavani’s dad, Luis, has also backed him to leave the club at the end of the season, and with reports that the club will be in the market for a new striker during the summer, also seems to push the Uruguayan out of the club.
