Edinson Cavani’s United debut set to be delayed due to coronavirus regulations

There's an option to extend the Uruguayan's contract to a further one-year.

Manchester United have signed former Paris St Germain striker Edinson Cavani on a free transfer with the Uruguay worldwide penning a one-year deal, with an option to extend for a further 12 months, the Premier League club said on Monday.

Edinson Cavani says he is ready to accept the responsibility of wearing the No 7 at Manchester United, with the Uruguayan saying he takes "great pride" in becoming the latest star to wear the shirt.

Cavani, a free deadline-day signing following his departure from Paris St Germain in June, went into self-isolation for a 14-day period when arriving from France on Sunday.

United are seeking clarification as to whether Cavani will also be exempt or whether his time not at a club will mean he is treated like the public, in regards quarantining. "I've worked really hard during the time off and I feel eager to compete and represent this incredible club", he said.

This means he will miss United's first game back after the worldwide break against Newcastle United on October 17th. "I can not wait to experience the Old Trafford atmosphere, when it is safe for the fans to return".

But just in case United fans were getting too excited about Cavani, here is some news to bring them back down to earth - he won't be able to play for the Red Devils for at least two weeks, due to coronavirus restrictions, according to PA.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is definitely without Anthony Martial for United's next game, which isn't until a week on Saturday because of the global break, after the Frenchman's red card against Spurs on Sunday.

Given that Cavani is now 33, following a less-successful final season with PSG, it is expected that his stats will be slightly reduced.

"We have been watching Thomas for a while, so we're now delighted to add such a high quality player to our squad", said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.
