Man United will not win title if Solskjaer keeps Cavani – Roy Keane

Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, has said the club will not win the Premier League title next season if Edinson Cavani is their first-choice striker.

Cavani has impressed during his time at Old Trafford and scored a brace as they beat Roma 6-2 in the Europa League in midweek.

The Uruguay striker arrived on a 12-month contract, but there is the option to extend for a further year and many believe the striker has warranted an extension.

However, Keane insists Cavani is past his best and United should consider other options in the transfer window ahead of next season.

“I kind of hope in one sense they don’t keep him, because then they might look and think we don’t need to go and get another (striker).

“He’s 34, if you’re hanging your hat on Cavani next year to getting United back to winning league titles, forget about it.

“He’ll be a back-up striker and he won’t want to be a back-up striker, so that’s why he’s reluctant to sign a new contract and there’s obviously family reasons behind it,” Keane told SkySports.
