Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said his new striker Edinson Cavani has been “very meticulous” in training and he is likely to make his debut on Saturday against Chelsea.
Cavani secured a move to Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer and could make his first appearance for the club against the Blues in the Premier League on Saturday.
The 33-year-old had to be in quarantine for two weeks, but has been working on his fitness.
Cavani missed United’s wins against Newcastle and former club Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, but Solskjaer believes the Uruguyan is now ready.
“He’s been very meticulous and very methodical in his training and his preparation.
“He didn’t feel ready for the PSG game because it was too early for him. He hadn’t done enough sharpness work, but he’s managed to do that this week and let’s see if that means he’s ready for the Chelsea game – I’m hopeful,” Solskjaer said ahead of the game.
