Deadline day deal: What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Cavani said about last minute switch to Manchester United


Manchester United, against all odds, completed the signing of Paris Saint Germaine (PSG) hitman, Edinson Cavani, to Old Trafford in nick of time.

Smarting from the 6-1 defeat in last outing with Tottenham Hotspurs, coached by former manager, Jose Mourhino, Manchester United signed  PSG's highest goal scorer, Cavani, on a one-year contract,  with an option of an extra year, alongside Porto's Brazillian Star, Alex Telles, and £37m rated Atalanta teenager Diallo, who is expected to join in January, and also brought in Urugyuan teenage sensation and winger,  Faccundo Pellestri, from Urugyan club Penarol for a reported fee of £9m.

The Premier League giants, who have been criticised for lack of activity in the summer transfer market, also sold out defender Chris Smalling to Roma on a permanent deal after a successful loan deal with the Italian side.

A deal for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele and Borrusia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho did not materialise though, meaning Barca were unable to secure the services of Ajax Memphis Depay and United were unable to meet up with Dortmund's price tag for Jadon Sancho. 

"Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, so it is a real honour to be here", 33-yr-old Cavani told the club's official website.

"I've worked really hard during the time off and I feel eager to complete and represent this incredible club," he added.

United boss, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, said: "Edinson is an experienced, ultimate professional who always gives everything for his team. Hs goalscoring record for club and country is fantastic and we are delighted to sign a player of his calibre."
