Manchester United want to extend the contract of striker Edison Cavani.
The Uruguayan international joined on transfer deadline day initially on a one-year deal, but with the option for a further year.
And now the Premier League club have already seen enough to want to exercise that option.
The 33-year-old had a difficult start to his career at Old Trafford as he was forced to self-isolate for a fortnight after arriving from France after leaving PSG when his deal expired there. He also had to serve a short ban after some ill-judged social media comments. He also had to build-up his match fitness.
Nonetheless, despite the fact that he has mainly been used off the bench – he has started just two Premier League games so far – Cavani has still managed to score three goals in eight appearances, and is expected to make a major contribution over the rest of the season.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
