English club, Manchester United face a penalty fee if they fail to extend the contract of Uruguayan striker, Edinson Cavani.
The 34-year-old was transferred for free from Paris Saint-Germain on the last day of the transfer window, signing a one-year option deal for another year.
But if the Red Devils decide not to approve that option, the Uruguayan – who has scored seven goals for United in all competitions this season – would be compensated.
According to the medium The Times, United would have to pay a prej 1.75m fine or € 2m in compensation.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and executive vice-president Ed Woodward will have to decide whether to extend Cavani’s contract, with the United manager reportedly eager to keep the Uruguayan international for the 2021-22 season.
While on the field he appeared with important goals – such as the two goals in the victory over Southampton in November, while he has also been a leader off the field.
Cavani has scored seven goals in 24 appearances in all competitions for United, the last of which came against Everton on 6 February. / Telegraphy /
