Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes Edinson Cavani career stage was not fitting for a two-year contract.
As reported here on Futaa, the 33-year-old Cavani signed for United as a free on Monday 5 October’s deadline day.
Now over a week after the dust has settled, how much is expected of Cavani and how does he fit in the team’s condition?
“Well, we'll have to wait and see won't we,” Scholes said on what to expect from Cavani.
“Obviously in his day, he's been a top quality centre-forward. There's no doubt about that. But he's 33 years old, looked like he was going to retire. He's not played a lot of football for PSG last season.
“Five, six years ago, yeah he's a great signing, he'll take us onto that next level possibly. But I just don't think he'll take us to the next level now.
Scholes added: “But that's what Manchester United seems to be now, it seems to be – I think of the forwards we have… Cavani, he should be a loan signing.
“If you're struggling without a centre-forward it should be a two or three-month loan signing just to get through a sticky period.
“Similar to what Henrik Larsson did. A brilliant centre-forward, 33, 34 years of age, he just filled a little gap for us, which was exactly what we needed.
“I see Cavani as that kind of person, not at 33 coming to sign a two-year contract. I find it very strange. But he won't, he'll be loving it. I'm sure he will,” concluded the former England international.
