Manchester United have signed Edinson Cavani on a free transfer.
The 33-year-old joined the club on transfer deadline day but some within Old Trafford aren’t satisfied.
Cavani admitted he was excited to join the Red Devils upon touching down at the club, saying: “Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, so it is a real honour to be here.”
However, a source close to the dressing room has told The Athletic that the signing of the Uruguay international ‘looks like a panic buy’.
Cavani is a proven goalscorer at the highest level scoring 200 goals from 301 matches during his time at PSG.
The Red Devils are hopeful he can emulate former team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Theatre of Dreams, with the Sweden international shining after his arrival four years ago.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Cavani after his move on deadline day, saying: “Edinson is an experienced ultimate professional who always gives everything for his team.”
United could hand Cavani his debut when they face Newcastle on October 17 after the international break.
