Man Utd Legend: I Hope They Don't Keep Cavani

Manchester United legend Roy Keane feels the Red Devils should not keep Edinson Cavani next season.

The Uruguayan, who signed for the 20-time English champions in 2020 on a one-year deal that includes the option of a further 12 months, has impressed during his debut campaign at Old Trafford, having bagged 12 goals and five assists across all competitions.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously spoken about keeping the Uruguayan in Manchester amid reports the player could join Boca Juniors.

However, Keane hopes the 34-year-old is not around next season so that the Premier League giants can focus on buying a new No. 9.

"I kind of hope that they don't keep him, because then they might look and think, 'We don't need to go and get another'," the former United captain told Sky Sports.

"He's 34, if you're hanging your hat on Cavani next year to getting United back to winning league titles, forget about it.

"He'll be a back-up striker and he won't want to be a back-up striker, so that's why he'll be reluctant to sign a new contract, and there's obviously family reasons behind it."
