Premier League legend Michael Owen has delivered his verdict on the signing of veteran striker EdinsonCavani at former club Manchester United. Uruguayan international Cavani was one of four new players signed by the Red Devils on the deadline day of the transfer window this summer.
Apart from Edinson Cavani, Manchester United signed Brazilian left-back Alex Telles from FC Porto of Portugal for a reported fee of €15m and the young forward duo of Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellestri. Amad Diallo has completed his transfer to Manchester United from Serie A team Atalanta but he won't join up with his teammates until January. On his part, Uruguayan Pellestri left Penarol FC of Uruguay to sign for the Red Devils.
Cavani brings a lot of experience and expertise to the Manchester United. He was signed as a free agent following his exit from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the summer. His PSG contract ended with the last campaign. He's one of the highest earners at Old Trafford with weekly wages of £200,000.
Michael Owen has had his say on the signing of EdinsonCavanivia quotes monitored by the Metro. The former Liverpool, Newcastle United and Stoke City striker is a big fan of the new Manchester United signing.
According to him, Edinson Cavani will score a lot of goals for Manchester United if chances are created for him. Michael Owen is not convinced that the current Manchester United setup will provide the necessary ammunition for the player to score goals for the Red Devils.
Cavani opened his Manchester United account at the weekend after coming on as a second half substitute. He scored the third goal to wrap up a 3-1 away victory for Manchester United at the expense of Everton.
The win over Everton ended a run of two straight defeats for Manchester United.
