Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that a decision is yet to be made on the future of Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan striker, who joined on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain, is out of contract at the end of the season but does have the option of extending that deal for a further year.
Despite that, the player’s father has suggested that he could leave Old Trafford, talking up a potential move to Boca Juniors come the summer.
Regardless of those comments, Solskjaer has said that neither party have come to a definitive decision as of yet.
Speaking ahead of his side’s UEFA Europa League tie with AC Milan, the Norwegian said: “I cannot comment on what has been said, I can only say that we’re very pleased with Edinson. He’s really helping the young kids, as we wanted him to.
“We knew he wasn’t going to be able to play every single game. He helps the rest of the group with his mentality. He will make his decision and he knows that we are very fond of what he’s given to the club, even though he’s probably played less games than he wanted.”
Solskjaer continued: “He’s always going to give his best. If it’s beyond this season as well… a decision hasn’t been made. As we’ve said, he’s made a great contribution so far. We’ll convince him when the weather in Manchester improves!”
Cavani has certainly had a positive impact in his time at Old Trafford, scoring seven goals in 25 appearances in all competitions. However, he is set to miss the game against Milan.
In his absence, Bruno Fernandes is the favourite to open the scoring at odds of 7/2 with Betfair.
