Edinson Cavani seen in Man Utd kit for first time as star sends message amid debut problem

Edinson Cavani has posted a video of himself wearing Manchester United training kit amid news his debut is set to be delayed. Experienced former Paris Saint-Germain striker Cavani joined United on a one-year deal with the option of a further season on transfer deadline day.

News emerged on Wednesday that the Uruguay star will have to wait to make his debut for the Red Devils.

Cavani has to undertake a 14-day quarantine period – which started on Sunday – so rules him out of the trip to Newcastle on October 17.

There is an exemption from the government for elite athletes but Cavani does not fit that criteria because he has been without a club and therefore not part of a secure bubble.

But the forward is doing all he can at his new home to get ready for when he can step on the field.

He posted a video on Thursday morning of himself running on a treadmill, wearing his new club’s training kit.

The 33-year-old captioned the video: “The clock does not stop.”

Cavani revealed his delight of signing for United after putting pen to paper on a deal on Monday.

“Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, so it is a real honour to be here,” Cavani told the United website.

“I’ve worked really hard during the time off and I feel eager to compete and represent this incredible club.

“I look forward to continuing to write my little story inside the book of football and I know that’s why my focus has to remain the same as always – work, work, work.

“I have had a conversation with the manager and this has increased my desire to wear this beautiful shirt.”

“The opportunity for our young players to learn from one of Europe’s top goalscorers over the last 10 years is fantastic and it will really benefit them going forward.

“Edinson knows exactly what it takes to succeed and we are all looking forward to seeing him make an impact at Manchester United.”
