Edinson Cavani to Man Utd: Incredible video welcomes PSG legend to Premier League


Edinson Cavani appears to be just hours away from becoming a Manchester United player.

Speculation had been bubbling away this week that United were looking to invest in a striker as they seemingly devolve into a mad spending spree after the collapse of a deal for Jadon Sancho.

So, for better or for worse, Cavani seems to be the man that United have settled upon and there’s no denying that the Paris Saint-Germain legend brings plenty of prestige to the table.

Cavani coming to Man Utd

It’s understandable that so many supporters are itching to order a Cavani jersey before he’s even signed the contract when you consider he’s the all-time record scorer at the Parc des Princes.

But on the flip side, there are fans who are justly concerned about the club paying out a reported €10 million in agent fees as well as some of the heftiest wages at Old Trafford.

Either way, though, the anticipation is undoubtedly building and for those gifted in the editing department, said excitement has manifested itself in a very familiar way.


‘Welcome to Man Utd’ videos

Ah, it’s the inevitable ‘Welcome to’ video, the piece of YouTube furniture that always rears its head whenever a top club are closing in on a new signing. They never get old, do they?

But fear not, you wouldn’t be reading this article if the version for Cavani was a boring one, cluttered with a bunch of tap-ins and bang average step-overs made to seem dramatic with EDM music.

No, we just happen to be talking about one of the greatest strikers of a generation and therefore, United fans have some pretty juicy footage to sink their teeth into.


Brilliant Cavani montage

We’re not talking about age-old clips of him scoring screamers in 2012 either because the montage made by YouTuber ‘AJcompsHD’ is packed full of recent entries in the Cavani catalogue.

But anyhow, we’ll let the video take centre stage, so brush away the negativity and enjoy the sheer brilliance of Cavani that we’ll be hoping to see in the Premier League very soon.


GIVEMESPORT’s Kobe Tong says

Look, I’ll be the first person to admit that I think United are making a mistake signing Cavani under these circumstances. Guilty as charged. I put my hands in the air.

But wowsers, I won’t deny for one second that Cavani is a truly world-class player and the thought of him playing in England’s top flight has me on tenterhooks.

And trust me when I say that I want Cavani to succeed at Old Trafford because, frankly, a player of his quality shining in England would make for dramatic moments and goals aplenty.


So, yes, I have my reservations in spades, but I’ll be doing the exact opposite of rolling my eyes if Cavani brings the bicycle kicks, volleys and free-kicks he scored with PSG to English shores.
