Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said the club are fighting to keep Edinson Cavani beyond this season.
The 34-year-old has been linked heavily with a move to Boca Juniors once his contract expires in June.
Cavani scored in the win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, and Solskjaer said after the game that the Uruguayan had not made a decision on his future.
When asked if Cavani will still be at the club next season, 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.”
