Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed striker Edinson Cavani is still undecided over whether he should extend his stay at Old Trafford or leave.
Cavani’s contract with United is set to expire at the end of the current season and is heavily linked with a move to Boca Juniors. The 34-year-old has been in fine form in United jersey and remains an important player for Solskjaer but injuries prevented him from making a greater impact.
Last month, Cavani’s father Luis admitted his son isn’t comfortable in England and wants to return home.
“My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again. Edinson is going to end up playing in South America,” said his father.
“Edinson had many conversations with Riquelme and he would like to play for Boca. He was always seduced by the idea of playing in Boca.”
Solskjaer however says Cavani hasn’t informed the club regarding his future with it looking increasingly likely he could leave after just 12 months.
“I have kept in touch with Edi and we keep an open dialogue. He’s still unsure what he wants to do next season, which is fine,” he said.
“It has not been an easy year – either for him or the rest of the world so he still wants time to make his mind up. I’m very sure we will get the good version of Edinson for the rest of the season. He knows this is the business end of the season.”
“We are fighting for the Europa League and we can see the end line in the league. There are only eight games left and you are thinking about where you are going to end up.”
“He has been so positive around the place, he’s been great to have, he’s been working hard to get fit and hopefully we can keep him fit the next six or seven weeks.”
Cavani has netted seven goals and providing two assists in 28 appearances.
