Edinson Cavani hints at Man Utd return from injury ‘soon’ as striker reveals he’s ‘looking forward to coming back’

EDINSON CAVANI has hinted the Manchester United striker will soon be back on the pitch.

Cavani has been sidelined due to injury but his Instagram message suggested his return is imminent.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker said he was looking forward to coming back soon.

Cavani has not played for United since their 1-1 draw at West Brom in February.

The 34-year-old has been sidelined for the last four matches with a muscle injury.

It was hoped he could play some part against Chelsea on Sunday but the striker was not fit to make the squad for the goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.

Cavani has proved a valuable addition to United's squad this season with the Uruguay star scoring seven goals.

But his future at Old Trafford remains uncertain beyond the end of this season.

Cavani signed a one-year deal with the option of an extra season. The striker will reportedly be due £1.75million if the club do not give him another year.

United appear to be waiting until he returns to full fitness before making a decision on his future.

But Cavani looks close to a return and could have a chance of featuring at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
