Rashford welcomed the competition Cavani will provide to United’s front line that includes himself, Martial, Greenwood, James and Ighalo
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford believes new signing Edinson Cavani can play an important role in helping the fallen giant of English football compete for trophies again.
The 33-year old forward joined United earlier this month on a free transfer from French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain and will don the club’s iconic No 7 jersey, worn in the past by Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham.
Rashford welcomed the competition the Uruguayan will provide to United’s front line that includes himself, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Daniel James and Odion Ighalo.
United had strong results towards the end of last season to secure third place in the Premier League and a Champions League spot while their Cup campaigns fell just short with semi-final losses in the League Cup, FA Cup and Europa League.
Cavani must wait to make his league debut after the club confirmed he will miss the Newcastle United game later Saturday since he is still self-isolating as per United Kingdom guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
