Official: Star Striker Quits Manchester United, Pays Tribute to Fans

Following a compromising two-year spell with Premier League giants, Manchester United, Uruguayan international and world class striker, Edinson Cavani has finally ended his ties with the Red Devils.

Signing for the Red Devils back in October, 2020 in a stunning deadline day move, Edinson Cavani had a promising spell in his first season at Old Trafford where he managed to be the main man alongside young strikers, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford. However, his second season at the club saw him sidelined by injuries, leading to his limited appearances on the pitch.

Moreover, the presence of star striker, Cristiano Ronaldo at the Theatre of Dreams in the last season further led to his absence with the Portugal international being preferred for the starting spot ahead of him.

Meanwhile, despite not being popular among the United fans, the Uruguayan has wasted in paying tribute to them after the massive support during his time at the Red half of Manchester: "I sincerely have nothing but words of gratitude towards the fans and supporters of Manchester United... I am really very grateful, and I’ll be leaving here with a happy memory of that affection they showed me and always displayed."
