Manchester United star Edinson Cavani has signed a new deal with the club, according to reports.

Claims from France and Uruguay both say the striker has agreed to extend the contract which would expire at the end of the season.

RMC Sport journalist Loic Tanzi is the one reporting it in Europe. He says Cavani has signed a deal until 2022 after responding ‘favourably to his club and coach’s request’ to stay in England.

News sources from the player’s home country have been confirming the deal as well. ESPN Uruguay was the first to bring the news from South America, with their sources reporting that a one-year deal was signed.

Journalist Rodrigo Romano also brings the same information, claiming that Manchester United should make the deal official ‘in the coming hours’.

Edinson Cavani joined the Red Devils on a free move following his departure from PSG last summer. Since his arrival at Old Trafford, he has 15 goals in 35 appearances.

His contract with Manchester United had an option to be extended for one more year. But judging by these reports, it sounds more like a new agreement has been reached between the parties.
