Paul Scholes criticises Manchester United over Edinson Cavani transfer

Paul Scholes has given his verdict on Manchester United's deadline day capture of Edinson Cavani. The Red Devils announced the signing of Cavani on the transfer deadline day. The 33-year-old has been without a club since July 2020 when his contract with Ligue 1 side PSG expired. Speaking to Stadium Astro: "Well, we’ll have to wait and see won’t we. Obviously in his day, he’s been a top quality centre-forward. There’s no doubt about that. But he’s 33 years old, looked like he was going to retire. He’s not played a lot of football for PSG last season. "Five, six years ago, yeah he’s a great signing, he’ll take us onto that next level possibly. But I just don’t think he’ll take us to the next level now. "But that’s what Manchester United seems to be now, it seems to be – I think of the forwards we have… Cavani, he should be a loan signing. "If you’re struggling without a centre-forward it should be a two or three month loan signing just to get through a sticky period. "Similar to what Henrik Larsson did. A brilliant centre-forward, 33, 34 years of age, he just filled a little gap for us, which was exactly what we needed. "I see Cavani as that kind of person, not at 33 coming to sign a two-year contract. I find it very strange. But he won’t, he’ll be loving it. I’m sure he will." source - Manchester Evening News Join us on Telegram
