should focus on keeping

instead of wasting so much money on players like Kane or Haaland.

Hargreaves told

“You’ve got to keep him, he’s fabulous. I thinks, first of all, he’s a great goal scorer and his minutes per goal show that. He’s the best player at United for that.

“I think everyone would love to have Harry Kane and Haaland, but with Cavani there, you don’t have to go and spend £ 100 million on a player because if you spend it there, then there are other positions needed.

“They need a right-winger, they need a central midfielder, they need a center-back. With Cavani there, he’s almost an insurance policy and you can go and spend it on three other players in important positions.

“I think if Cavani played the whole of next season, then he could easily get you 25 goals, with other boys. Just a mentor for Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and [Anthony] Martial- he’s perfect. I would 100% keep him and invest the money in other positions”

Despite Hargreaves's interest in the Uruguayan striker, the club seems to be looking for a new number 9 for their front line, with Kane and Haaland on the top of their list of targets, according to the reports.

Cavani is not happy at Old Trafford, and he is looking to go back to his own country as soon as possible, according to his father; but if the Red Devils don’t sign a new striker, he may stay with the team for at least another season.

Despite facing multiple injuries since his arrival at the club, Cavani has scored nine goals in his first 16 starts for the Red Devils and provided two assists, and his impressive stats despite the lack of playing time may see him another year extension that is one of the options of his contract.
