Edinson Cavani was one of the players to arrive at Manchester United on deadline day of the last transfer window. 

The striker joined the Red Devils as a free agent and signed a one year contract with the option to extend it further by a year. 

He is currently self-isolating and will not be able to make his United debut against Newcastle United at the weekend. 

Although he has not kicked a ball for the Premier League side and has not even trained with his new teammates, there have been questions about his arrival. 

United legend Paul Scholes and former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp have criticised the Old Trafford club for signing the Uruguayan.

Comments from Scholes and Redknapp have been relayed by AS and their title reads: ‘Cavani adds detractors’.

Just days after signing for the English club, the 33-year-old has talked about his desire to play for Boca Juniors in the future. 

“Roman (Riquelme) wrote to me with great respect, he wanted to know how the situation was, in terms of salary, we had a very respectful talk. Boca are a global giant, any player would like to play there. There have been many Uruguayans who have played there…” Cavani told ESPN, as quoted by AS.

“There are some secrets of the conversation with Roman, they should ask him if he wants to tell them. We will see what happens in the future. It would be very nice to be able to play at Boca one day.”

The report explains Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a ‘great supporter’ of the South American’s signing.

AS adds Cavani’s comments on Boca Juniors indicate he ‘doesn’t lose sight of his future’ in case his time with United doesn’t go as per his and his new manager’s plans.
