Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects new signing Edinson Cavani to have a major impact on the team’s fortunes going forward. The striker was signed on a free transfer after he left PSG following the expiry of his contract. A player with huge reputation, Cavani has a lot of pressure on his shoulders even if he comes to Old Trafford as a veteran. Due to his age, Cavani might not have been expected to contribute a lot to the first-team but that may not be the case, according to the boss.
Solskjaer says that Cavani is slowly getting sharper as a result of training with the team and he expects the Uruguayan striker to create a significant impact in forthcoming matches. Even though he has been playing at the top level with PSG, Cavani has had little action in recent years. Furthermore, the 33-year-old is facing a battle against time when it comes to keeping up his fitness levels. The lower fitness levels seem to have been a key factor in Cavani being restricted to cameo appearances in recent matches. His latest appearance came in the 1-0 loss against Arsenal after previously coming on as a substitute in the draw with Chelsea.
