Edinson Cavani is quickly becoming a cult hero for Manchester United.

The Uruguayan striker signed a new deal today to meet fans’ requests. These were the pictures we all hoped for …

Cavani had one more to share and posted a message on Instagram Monday night.

His post contained a fantastic five word message that read: “PROUD to Defend this Shirt”.

Cavani appears to have fallen in love with United over the past few months.

He had a rocky start to life in England, arriving in the middle of a year with a pandemic and no supporters on the premises, having to update himself on fitness, and then was hit with a farce of a ban from the FA.

That’s all behind him now and Cavani is playing the best football of his time at Old Trafford.

He has a total of 15 goals, eight of them in his last seven games.

United fans were dying to renew his contract and it’s a relief that he put pen to paper.

A return to South America can wait. Cavani has so much more to offer, and his United career still has a few chapters to write.

This season could end with cutlery and United will be there next season as well. Cavani automatically makes the club a team to be afraid of.
