Manchester United legend Roy Keane has admitted that he hopes Manchester United don’t keep Edinson Cavani beyond the summer.
According to Keane, Manchester United can’t win the Premier League title next season with a 34 year old Cavani as the main striker.
Keane told Sky Sports: “I kind of hope that they don’t keep him, because then they might look and think ‘we don’t need to go and get another’.
“He’s 34, if you’re hanging your hat on Cavani next year to getting United back to winning league titles, forget about it.
“He’ll be a back-up striker and he won’t want to be a back-up striker, so that’s why he’ll be reluctant to sign a new contract and there’s obviously family reasons behind it.”
The Uruguayan has hit 12 goals in 33 outings across all competitions to date, while also setting up a further five for his team-mates.
Cavani was named United’s Player of the Month for April after scoring five goals in four starts, including a stunning brace in a 6-2 victory over Roma in the Europa League semi-finals.
