Striker Edinson Cavani ended last season in amazing form, scoring 17 goals in his debut season at Manchester United.
Unfortunately, the season ended with heartbreak in the Europa League final, and then Cavanis Uruguayan was eliminated from the Copa America – also on penalties.

Understandably, Cavani has had a total hiatus in the last month.
The veteran striker has now turned back to Manchester United with an Instagram post reflecting his first game in front of fans at the stadium.
Cavani’s picture comes from his goal celebration against Fulham in early May after his spectacular long shot.
10,000 fans came for the game, much more than the empty stadiums Cavani and his United teammates played in last year.
Motivation for the coming year
Cavani’s message, which focuses on the feeling fans can bring to Old Trafford, underscores his reason for staying and his motivation for the season ahead.
During contract negotiations, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged Cavani to stay for the real Manchester United experience.
Solskjaer told the club’s website after the Tottenham win earlier this year: “I want it to be full at Old Trafford, Stretford End has a header like it did today. There is no better feeling. “
Cavani accepted United’s offer to extend his contract for a year and is expected at Carrington today, The MEN reports.
His Instagram post suggests his thoughts are back on United after a few months of absence and now preparations will begin for him to start the first game of the season at home against Leeds on August 14th.
