Man United unlikely to target striker after Cavani renewal

Manchester United are unlikely to enter the market for a new striker this summer following the renewal of Edinson Cavani’s contract, according to Sky Sports.

The 34-year-old was reportedly keen to return to South America for the remainder of his career, but things have obviously changed in that aspect and he is now bound to stay at Old Trafford for the 2021-22 season, having extended his deal for 12 months.

United have been credited with renewed interest in last summer’s target Jadon Sancho, as well as his Borussia Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane. But while the Sancho move isn’t yet ruled out, with Cavani still on board, there is now no need for the Europa League finalists to splash out the kind of cash the purchase of either Haaland or Kane would demand.

Meanwhile, the areas they will look to strengthen this year are centre midfield and centre-back.
