Manchester United fans told they have the new Ibrahimovic at the club as superstar backed for Red Devils success
Manchester United told they have another Zlatan Ibrahimovic on their hands in the shape of Edinson Cavani.
After being linked with some of the games very best strikers over the transfer window, united failed to get their top targets signed and in the end, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to bring free agent Cavani to the club in order to add to his attack.
Cavani is now 33-years of age and is not the same player that he was a few seasons ago, with many fans, pundits and media outlets all suggesting that he will be a massive flop in the Premier League, that he is far too old to make an impact.
But fellow countryman Diego Forlan is backing him to shine at Old Trafford, The former United striker told the South China Morning Post: “Edinson is still a great player. I’ve not seen any decline in him yet. I think he’s a top signing for United, just like Zlatan was. He’s that type of player. He’ll lead by example, by how he trains and how he plays. He’ll be a positive influence for the young players.
“He’s a winner who has won lots of trophies, a goalscorer who has scored wherever he has been, he assists too. He’s strong and his physique will be fine for English football. He’s quick, he’s highly motivated.”
There has been alot said about the ability of Cavani before he has even kicked a ball for United, but one thing is for certain, he has scored goals wherever he has moved too over the years and may get a few at Old Trafford.
But he is a short-term fix that United will hope works out well.
