Edinson Cavani Completes Man Utd Medical, To Join Early This Afternoon

Edinson Cavani has reportedly completed the first part of his medical at Manchester United and is likely to join early this afternoon on a one-year contract, according to BBC Sport.

The Red Devils have reportedly agreed a two-year contract with the Uruguayan who is a free agent having left Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

The deal is likely to be officially announced later today (Monday).

It’s understood the Uruguayan striker will be paid £200,000-a-week or £10.4million-a-year.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side believe Cavani will be a boost to the development of their young strikers.

He spent seven years with PSG and managed 200 goals in 301 appearances to become their all-time top scorer.
