Cavani scored twice in Thursday's 6-2 thrashing of Roma in the Europa League semi-finals taking his tally to 12 goals in 33 appearances.

Solskjaer said Cavani was "excellent" after saying it's been hard for him playing at the Theatre of Dreams with empty stands.

‘I’m absolutely delighted with him. You can see the difference in him, he’s worked up his fitness having had a long lay-off. He’s making up for lost time," said the Norwegian boss.

"He knows my feelings, he knows that I would love to have him for another year, we have spoken about it.

"I understand this year has been very difficult, but I promised him that Old Trafford and Manchester is a different place with fans in the stadium."
