Edinson Cavani helped Manchester United kill the Roma with a fascinating feat.
Cavani scored two goals, won a penalty and made two assists for an emphatic 6-2 win.

This was a stop-start season for the Uruguayan, who arrived late, had to get fit, was suspended and then injured again.
In addition, the last two months have been marked by discussions about his future, whether he will stay another year or return to South America.
Cavani is just letting his soccer ball do the talking. Supporters have made it very clear that they want him to stay.
The forward’s passion seems to be made for a full Old Trafford and this would have been a really special night, even more if Cavani had had the chance to enjoy the home support experience.
Cavani really broke Curse # 7
The productive striker we’ve needed all along

An absolute sin if Cavani is not allowed to play before a full OT.

Cavani deserves the crowd at Old Trafford singing his name.

Seeing Bruno, Paul and Cavani is poetry in motion. The best and brightest players end up on the same wavelength, and it’s no surprise at all that the three continue to find each other. Fantastic.

United must do everything possible to keep Cavani for another season!

We need another season of Cavani

Cavani will stay with Man United for another year in prayer. World class player

Imagine a full OT tonight, I want to tell Cavani how much I love him, come on! #Mufc

Solskjaer does his game
After the win, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reiterated that Cavani should extend his contract for another season.
He said on the club’s official website, “I understand it was very difficult for him. I promised him that Old Trafford and Manchester would be another place with fans. He has to try to get the feeling that Manchester is a good place to live. I give my best. Hopefully nights like this will help him see himself here for another year. “
It may of course be tempting for Cavani to bend over at a peak and leave after winning the Europa League. But he has to cope with this particular challenge.
He’s getting closer, with United almost in the final. Cavani has never won a major European cup and this is his chance.
If he stays an extra year, he’ll get another crack in the Champions League.
