'Ronaldo Has Taken All The Spotlight From Cavani'

Former Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov says Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival this season has taken all the spotlight away from Edinson Cavani.

Cavani enjoyed a productive first campaign with the Red Devils after bagging 17 goals across all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 2020/21 season.

However, the Uruguayan has scored only one goal in eight appearances so far this time around, and Berbatov feels the striker's situation at Old Trafford is unfair.

"Despite a good season last time out, Cavani hasn't played enough," the Bulgarian told Betfair.

"When someone like Ronaldo comes into the club, he takes all the spotlight, he plays every game and in the world of football this happens.

"It's not a fair situation because Cavani did so well for the team last season, he earned a new deal but Ronaldo has taken his place in the team. It's not fair but this happens in football.

"If there's a chance for Cavani to leave the club, if there is an offer from Barcelona, then of course he will be thinking about taking it to get more football, and if he will get more game time in La Liga then I will support him and say 'go there and play, it sounds like a great deal, great money, and you're not 24 anymore."
