Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has affirmed that the club will fight hard to keep Edinson Cavani on the books for the 2021-22 season.

The former Paris Saint-Germain attacker netted Man United's second goal in their 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday - an impressive diving header - but his future beyond the end of the season remains unclear.

Cavani has been heavily linked with a return to South America with Boca Juniors in order to be closer to his family, but Solskjaer insists that there is "no secret" over the Red Devils' desire to keep him on the books.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Solskjaer said: "We have had upfront and honest meetings. There's no secret, we want to keep him.

"I don't think it's any secret that this has been a difficult year for everyone, with the pandemic, it's not been possible to have friends over, family over, to travel, he's not been able to experience the fantastic culture of Manchester and England.

"He's contemplating and thinking hard and long about what he wants to do, and I understand. He knows what I want, him at Old Trafford at the Stretford End scoring a diving header, there's not a better feeling. So let's wait and see.

"He knows my feelings, I know his feelings. He has not made up his mind yet and I understand that it has been a difficult year for everyone but for a new lad who does not speak English, not to feel the English culture to go and see people, have friends around, it's in the back of your head if this is what you want.

"You cannot have your family over so fingers crossed, if he decides it's just this season, we have been very fortunate to have him here."

Cavani's goal in North London on Saturday took him up to seven for the Premier League season - a tally he has achieved in 20 top-flight appearances. body check tags ::
