Manchester United have completed the signing of former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani on a two-year deal.
United’s interest in the Uruguayan emerged seemingly out of nowhere towards the end of the window, with the clock running down on their chances of signing a new forward. The 33-year-old was available on a free, so could have been signed after the deadline, but the club have moved to conclude the deal along with the rest of their transfer business.
Cavani has been one of the best goalscorers in Europe throughout spells with Napoli and PSG, but found himself increasingly out of favour last season under Thomas Tuchel. He scored exactly 200 goals in 301 appearances for the Parisians, however, and joins United with a fearsome reputation.
