Edinson Cavani has shown throughout the course of the season that he is still a brilliant striker and has been absolutely vital to Manchester United over the past several weeks.

Not too long ago, the Red Devils were struggling to find the back of the net on a consistent basis. But ever since the Uruguayan has returned to form and fitness, that has not been a problem.

In fact, they have scored two or more goals in six of their last seven games. And Cavani has had a huge role to play in that. The striker even got a brace in their incredible 6-2 victory over AS Roma in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final tie, scoring the Red Devils’ equaliser and the goal that gave them the lead.

Cavani linked with Manchester United exit

Cavani has been linked with a Manchester United exit for months now despite only arriving at Old Trafford last summer. And if he was to indeed depart, Boca Juniors appear to be his most likely destination at this point of time.

It does look like the club will do their best to convince him to remain at Old Trafford, as he has already shown that even at 34 years of age, he is capable of leading the line for a top Premier League side. Now, it remains to be seen what decision the Uruguayan will make regarding his future.

While he has had his fair share of injury issues this season, it does look like he is still the best striker that the club have right now. But regardless of his decision, the Red Devils are expected to try to sign a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window.
