Solskjaer sends Cavani message, Mbappe hails Rashford, Haaland makes transfer decision and Traore message sent in Manchester United roundup…
Edinson Cavani “still hasn’t ticked all the boxes” at Manchester United, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
After months of speculation and rumours, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally managed to bring in a new striker to the club, after they offered free agent Cavani a big contract after he failed to secure a move after leaving PSG.
Questions have been asked of whether Cavani can deliver the goods in English football, but plenty are tipping him to make a Zlatan Ibrahimovic-style impact for United, and Solskjaer believes the former Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain star will prove to be a shrewd addition in time.
However, he admits he cannot be thrown in at the deep end before working on his match sharpness, as he has not ticked all the boxes just yet, he told the club website: “He’s naturally fit. He is fit enough but he needs to play football with the rest of the players and be in those kinds of situations.
“Of course, you can’t live on memory, really, because it’s been a while.
“He’s very thorough, professional and he knows what he needs and what he wants. He still hasn’t ticked all the boxes before he’s available to play.”
It will be very interesting to see just how much of an impact that Cavani can have in this Manchester United side as Solskjaer needs him to bang in the goals on a weekly basis.

Wolves boss Nuno says flying winger Adama Traore is “delighted” to be at Molineux, with Manchester United and Barcelona linked with possible moves.
Over the last few seasons, Traore has truly developed into a dangerous winger that can cause some serious issues to most sides in the Premier League, with his performances catching the eyes of Barcelona and United
It would take big money to get a deal done, as Wolves have no interest in selling and are said to be in the process of thrashing out fresh terms with a prized asset on their books, and Nuno has suggested that an agreement will be reached in those discussions.
The Wolves boss was quoted on TalkSport: “What I can say about this is Adama is delighted to be here. You can see how happy he’s been in training just by seeing us be together again.
“Things will happen naturally. Speculation around our players doesn’t bother us.
“We know what we have to do. First of all, you have to be happy where you are, and he clearly is.”
“I watch all the matches our players are involved in – some of them live, some of them I record and watch all the minutes our players play,” Nuno added.
“I was delighted and really happy for Adama because he made his debut and he made his debut as a starter, so that shows the progress and the impact Adama had.
“I was delighted with all of our internationals – Daniel Podence made his debut for Portugal, Conor Coady scored for England.
“Some players didn’t have so many minutes as we would have wished because the international coaches made different decisions.
“I’m happy but at the same time worried and tremendously proud at the amount of international players we have at Wolves.
“We must feel proud as a squad and as a club because representing your national team is the best of the best in your own country so that says enough.
“It says a lot about the quality and the talent of the players we have, and the hard work that we put in.
“When we arrived we didn’t have so many internationals so the progression and the commitment of this group makes me hugely proud.”
Paul Pogba is a big fan of Manchester United star Marcus Rashford’s “special” talents, Kylian Mbappe has revealed.
Since breaking through as a teenager a few seasons ago, Rashford has developed into a deadly attacker for this Manchester United side and is constantly the best player on the pitch for the club.
World Cup-winning Frenchman Pogba has been aware of the potential in a Red Devils forward for some time, having graduated through the same Old Trafford academy system, and he been impressed by what he has seen from the England international, with a talented 22-year-old becoming a role model for millions with his efforts on and off the field.
And Mbappe, who is about to face Rashford in the Champions League as Paris Saint-Germain prepare to play host to United, is another member of the Red Devils winger’s ever-growing fan club.
Mbappe told reporters ahead of a continental clash with Rashford: “He’s one of the most dangerous forward players in England.
“Paul Pogba has spoken about how special he is and he doesn’t talk about players in such a way often.
“When you take a penalty in that situation, how much practice you have put on the training ground doesn’t matter. It’s about confidence and he’s a player who plays with so much confidence.”
It is high praise for Rashford to see two of the very best players in the game be such a fan of his talents, he has earned them over the past few seasons and fully deserves all the plaudits he gets on and off the field.
