Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled Edinson Cavani out of Manchester United’s trip to West Ham United this weekend.
The striker will miss the clash with a ‘slight strain’ he picked up during the international break.
In his Thursday’s press conference, Solskjaer said:
“Edinson hopefully will start training with us after the weekend. Hopefully, maybe Monday so maybe he’ll be involved on Wednesday, who knows?
“He had a fantastic season last season, the impact he made towards the end of it when he got his fitness.
“He struggled earlier on with his fitness, with niggly injuries, so we feel now to get the best out of Edinson this season we need to have him 100 per cent fit and not push him.”
With the summer transfers of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, and the impressive form of Mason Greenwood, Solskjaer is under no pressure to rush the Uruguayan back into the first team, so will take his time.
