Cavani has made 25 appearances for United so far, scoring seven goals.

But it appears this will be his first and only campain in English football.

The 34-year-old’s father Luis Cavani says the striker wants to return to South America.

Luis Cavani told TyC Sports: “My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again.

However, he was absent for the visit to rivals Manchester City on Sunday, which Solskjaer put down to a minor problem.

“He had to come off [in] training, he didn’t feel right unfortunately,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

The Norwegian added to Sky Sports: “He’s got a niggle again unfortunately.

“He had to come off training yesterday. We had to make a team without him.”
