Suarez’s verdict on Cavani after Uruguay team-mate completed Man Utd transfer

Luis Suarez has given his verdict on Edinson Cavani as his Uruguay team-mate joins Manchester United this transfer window.

The 33-year-old signed for the Red Devils on a one-year deal, with an option for another season, on deadline day.

It follows his release from Paris St-Germain after his contract expired in the summer.

After seven years at the Parc des Princes, he finished his time at the club as their highest-ever goalscorer.

United made a move for the veteran forward after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made attacking signings a priority.

He has adopted the famous No. 7 jersey, following in the footsteps of legends such as Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and David Beckham.

However, the former Napoli star has not played any football since March after France cancelled the season amid the coronavirus crisis.

It has seen Cavani dropped from the Uruguay squad, who face Chile and Ecuador over the next week.

And Suarez has revealed that his omission is a huge loss but admitted that his strike partner's move to United can only be good for the country.

"The absence of an important player like Cavani will always be felt," he said.

"But we have to be aware that we have players who are at a very good level in Europe.

"I’m sure that they will show the manager that they are ready."

Cavani and Suarez are one of the most deadly partnerships in South America – scoring 109 goals for their country between them.

Meanwhile, the former PSG man has revealed how a chat with Solskjaer convinced him to join the Red Devils.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, so it is a real honour to be here.

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

“I’ve played in front of some of the most passionate supporters in football during my career and I know that it will be the same in Manchester.

"Can’t wait to experience the Old Trafford atmosphere, when it is safe for the fans to return.

“I look forward to continuing to write my little story inside the book of football.

"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.”
