Manchester United Sign Edinson Cavani in 2020 Great News for the Fans

Manchester United sign Cavani

It’s true Edinson Cavani is now a Manchester United player. Who thought this day would ever come. Manchester United fans are very excited to see Cavani plays and what he brings to the table. Will Cavani turn Manchester’s United luck around and make that 6-1 defeat by Tottenham a onetime thing.  

But Cavani’s signing is not fully done because he has not played a match yet because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Before the signing Cavani played for Paris St-Germain (PSG) so when he signed a contract to play for Manchester United, he had flown all the way to England and quarantine for 14 days and yet to finish his days but when he has he will be ready to get back on the field and bags some goals for himself and hopefully feel a part of the team. 

Cavani in recent seasons
Season Club Games Goals
2019-20 PSG 22 7
2018-19 PSG 33 23
2017-18 PSG 48 40
2016-17 PSG 50 49

But can he improve United?

United’s fixture schedule is packed, with nine successive midweek matches from the middle of October to after Christmas and potentially 14 in a row depending on cup commitments and when a rearranged game against Burnley is scheduled. Cavani provides another option. He is more of a natural number nine than any other striker on United’s books with the exception of Mason Greenwood, and the 19-year-old is too young to carry the burden alone.

The theory is Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will benefit from Cavani’s presence – and his striker’s instinct may put defences on the back foot more than has been the case in the opening couple of Premier League games, which has squeezed the space for Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

In addition, with the arrival of midfielder Donny van de Beek, Solskjaer has options in terms of not just the personnel but also the formation. If those injuries of last season can be cast aside, there is statistical evidence Cavani could have an impact.

Insight from London-based investment company Carteret Analytics – which advises three Premier League clubs, and another 12 leading sides from around Europe and the rest of the world, on potential new signings and transfer finances – makes for positive reading.

Carteret gives players a rating measured by how much influence they have on winning matches – it can be used by clubs when making recruitment decisions.

Cavani’s rating for his performances last season was a disappointing 158.6, but his overall rating – across his career as a whole – is 326.7.

That’s compared to a rating of 249.5 for Rashford, 180.3 for Greenwood and 251.8 for Martial.

His ‘intrinsic value’ – a figure Carteret place on a player’s worth to an individual club – is £35.61m, with Rashford’s £40.3m and Martial’s £45.57m.
