Edinson Cavani should not be handed a new contract claims Roy Keane.
The Uruguayan international’s contract will expire in the summer and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to keep the 34-year old striker for another season.
Edinson Cavani scored five goals in his last five games and produced as well as two assists.
He was expected to join his boyhood club Boca Juniors in the summer but it seems he would be willing to extend his time at Old Trafford.
United legend Roy Keane doesn’t agree with the club handing the veteran a new contract.
“I kind of hope in one sense they don’t keep [Cavani],” Keane said.
“Because then they might look at it and go, ‘We don’t need to go out and get another striker’. It might be an easy way out.
“He’s 34. If you’re hanging your hat on Cavani next year to get United back to winning league titles, forget about it.
“He’d be a back-up striker, and he wouldn’t want to be a back-up striker. That’s why he’s reluctant to sign a new contract. And obviously his family reasons behind it.”
