With Edinson Cavani, it’s still a matter of hope than certainty regarding his future at Manchester United.

The Uruguayan has shown that he is still a quality striker, and with 12 goals to his name, one can only imagine how much more he can deliver when he is fully settled, as his debut season has been full of stop-gap appearances.

Speaking ahead of the second leg Europa League tie against Roma, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Cavani has a more positive body language and is hopeful that the 34-year-old will stay for at least an extra year.

“We’ve had some good chats lately and even though the decision is still in his court, I’m still hopeful,” said Solskjaer.

“Maybe even more so when you saw him on Thursday against Rome, and telling him ‘when you do that in front of the Stretford End, that’s magic’.

“So I’m still hopeful, yeah.”
