Through his performances this season, Edinson Cavani has shown that he is still capable of leading the line for Manchester United.
Yes, he is 34 years of age and might not be a long-term answer to the club’s problems up top and has had his fair share of injury troubles throughout the course of the campaign. But he is definitely still a great player and arguably the best striker at Old Trafford at this point of time.
Worryingly for the Red Devils, he has been linked with an exit for months now, with Boca Juniors being touted as a possible destination. It is not hard to see why the club would be keen to keep him for at least another season and it is believed that they have been trying hard to convince the Uruguayan to stay. And there appears to be a breakthrough in this regard.
As reported by ESPN, it appears that he is now leaning towards remaining at Manchester United after rediscovering his best form recently.

Cavani staying would be a massive boost for Manchester United
It goes without saying that Cavani remaining at Old Trafford would be a huge boost for the Red Devils. The club do not have much depth at striker at this point of time and the Uruguayan leaving would have left them short of options up top.
But even if Cavani ends up staying, the Red Devils would be expected to make a move for a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window. While the Uruguayan might have impressed whenever he has been on the pitch, he is not going to be the long-term answer for Manchester United.
The club have been linked with some huge names in the past few months, including the likes of Harry Kane and Erling Haaland. The names of Andre Silva and Andrea Belotti have been mentioned as well. Now, it remains to be seen what the Red Devils decide to do in the summer.
