Cavani shines as Man United hammer Roma

Manchester United were in Europa League semi-final action last night vs AS Roma.

The Red Devils started the tie brightly and took an early lead before then conceding two goals before the break.

After the break, though, United looked a rejuvenated outfit and would go on to tear apart an injury-hit Roma side.

Edinson Cavani netted an equaliser just three minutes into the second half before regaining United the lead 64 minutes in.

From here the floodgates opened and Man United went on to net another three goals to all but secure their passage into the final.

Cavani’s future

Following the Roma game, talk of Edinson Cavani’s future with the Manchester outfit has once again re-emerged.

The Uruguayan does have a clause in his contract, which currently runs out this summer, that would allow United to extend his deal by an extra year if both parties wish to do so.

However, reports just last week claimed that Cavani wants to join Bocca Juniors in the summer.

As reported by Fabrizio Romano on Thursday evening, though, Man United will do everything to keep hold of the striker:

Manchester United will do ‘everything they can’ to keep Edinson Cavani. The board and everyone in the club want Edi to stay – as they told him in last meeting. Solskjaer is pushing with the player. 🔴 #MUFC

Cavani will communicate his decision after speaking with his family. 🇺🇾

Solskjaer himself was also quizzed on Cavani’s future post-match, with the Norwegian reaffirming his desire to see the former PSG man stay out:

“Cavani knows my feelings. He knows I would love to have him here also in the next season. I promised him Old Trafford is a different place with fans… I am doing my best. Hopefully we will see him at Man United for another year.”

Solskjaer confirms: “Cavani knows my feelings. He knows I would love to have him here also in the mext season. I promised him Old Trafford is a different place with fans… I am doing my best. Hopefully we will see him at Man United for another year”. 🔴 @sistoney67 #MUFC https://t.co/rV95EM6lRP
