Manchester United interim Manager Ralf Rangnick is Keen on keeping Edinson Cavani at the club’s until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old has been linked with a move out of the club this January window after struggling to make it to regular play this season.
However, his performance against Newcastle and Burnley showed that the striker who has made only 10 appearances for the club has a lot to give at the club.
“We’ve had quite a few conversations in the last couple of weeks, he’s probably the player I have spoken to most,” said Rangnick.
“I told him from the very first day he’s a highly important player, probably the only one that can play as a striker back to goal and as I have said before, his professionalism and work ethic is amazing.
“I told him that I desperately want him to stay until the end of the season and he knows how highly I rate and respect him.
“He knows I definitely would not let him go, for me he is a highly important player for the rest of the season in a squad still playing in three competitions – we definitely need him and it is clear he has to stay.”
