Edinson Cavani expected to leave Man Utd this summer

Edinson Cavani is expected to leave Manchester United when his contract expires this summer, reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano reports.

The Uruguay international had an impressive debut campaign for the Red Devils last term, bagging 17 goals across all competitions.

He was convinced to stay for another year, but the current season has been far from successful with just two goals.

The stunning return of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer has significantly reduced his game time over the course of the campaign.

It is now reported that he will pursue a new challenge when his contract expires in June. The 34-year-old is exploring a move to La Liga.

Our view:

Cavani struggled with injuries last season but had a terrific second half to the campaign, where he was hugely impressive in the Europa League.

It was a no-brainer to keep him for another year, but he would not have envisaged the homecoming of Ronaldo last summer.

Cavani was the subject of interest from Barcelona recently, but he was convinced to stay by interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

It seems unlikely that the Blaugrana will return for him, having recruited Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a permanent deal.

He should still receive plenty of transfer offers as he can be a consistent goalscorer if given a regular run of starts.

Cavani is currently struggling with a groin injury and appears a major doubt to face Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday.
