Edinson Cavani difference to Zlatan Ibrahimovic should leave Man Utd fans happy

Edinson Cavani could leave Manchester United this summer having initially signed just a one-year contract, but fans should not be concerned.

Cavani has impressed since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer, joining the Red Devils after the expiration of his PSG contract.

The Uruguayan has bagged six Premier League goals with decisive strikes coming against Southampton, Everton, and Fulham.

His impact has been likened to that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede arrived at Old Trafford in 2016.

Ibrahimovic had also initially signed a one-year contract though United extended that despite the former Barcelona striker suffering a serious knee injury.

Ibra was constantly teasing that he would stay at Old Trafford, with plenty of focus being on him.

Cavani appears to not be as concerned over his future with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously suggesting the club would extend his contract.

United fans appear to be eager to keep Cavani with the striker, who turns 34 on Sunday, having proven to be a focal point at Old Trafford.

And Solskjaer believes his influence is replicating that of Teddy Sheringham at the Theatre of Dreams.

Solskjaer recently said: "Teddy came in 1997 with his experience and I learnt a lot from him. I think he [Edinson Cavani] has come in and almost been a similar type of influence.

"We were young strikers learning off Teddy, now Cavani has Mason [Greenwood], Marcus [Rashford] and Anthony [Martial] learning off him. Edinson has been a great addition.

"He leads by example, he goes about his job professionally. It's his passion, he loves football, he loves working hard for the team. It is never me before anyone else, the team is always first.
