Superstar signing to have Fernandes-esque impact at Manchester United announces legend
Edinson Cavani is capable of making a Bruno Fernandes-esque impact at Manchester United, says Ryan Giggs.
It was no secret in the media that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to splash the cash and try to bring in a new striker to lead the Manchester United attack, and was linked to some world class strikers.
But he failed to get any of his top transfer targets and instead opted to make a move to bring Cavani to Old Trafford in a move that has divided many people, fans and the media, with some believing he will be a massive success, and some saying that he will be an expensive flop.
But Giggs believes a prolific South American will prove his worth when up to full speed, The United legend told Webby & O’Neill’s YouTube channel of a player he has faced in his current role as manager of the Wales national team: “I faced Cavani in my second game for Wales and he was better than Luis Suarez in the game. I didn’t think he was that good.
“He was a real handful. He hasn’t played for a long time so he might be a little bit rusty.
“But what you’re getting; you’re getting a centre forward which I think a lot of fans have been crying out for.
“A proper centre forward who can led the line. We have Marcus [Rashford], Martial who is half a winger, half a centre-forward. Cavani is a forward, a target man.
“He’s got the experience. I’m hoping, just like Bruno has, he will make the players around him even better.”
Cavani does have alot of pressure on his shoulders to lead this exciting united attack, but the one thing he does have, is players around him that will be able to take the pressure off.
He can be a classy striker for the club if he is able to handle the British media, and if United can get 15 goals out of him this season, it will be seen as a success story for the man.
