Edinson Cavani appears to have made a decision on his future at Manchester United after being linked with a move away from the club this month. Cristiano Ronaldo is also understood to be considering his future less than six months after his sensational return to Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani is set to stay at United until the end of the season, Ralf Rangnick has confirmed.

The Uruguayan is out of contract in the summer so could agree a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs.

But with Anthony Martial looking to leave this month and Ronaldo reportedly unhappy, Rangnick has confirmed that he should have Cavani available until the end of the season.

The 34-year-old has proved his worth with some timely goals this season, and has become an experienced squad member for players to look up to.

“No, but I also didn’t tell Edi that he cannot leave,” Rangnick said when asked if he had told Cavani he can leave.

“I told him that if it was up to me I would want him to stay and I had a conversation with him [on Thursday].

“He came to my office and we spoke for almost half an hour and he told me that he will definitely stay, he will want to stay until the end of the season.

“Not only because I told him that he should stay or has to stay, but he did it on his own behalf.

“He told me that I can rely on him to stay until the end of the season and give his very best, be a role model for the young players.

“If he should play from the start, he’s available and he’s happy to play.

“Even if he’s not playing, he will be trying to be the best possible role model for the other players.

“This is, for me, good news because Edi is one of those players with his vast amount of experience, his mentality, his work ethic, who could really be a perfect role model for all the other players.”

Cavani’s decision to stay comes at a crucial time after Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes jetted in over the weekend to hold a crisis meeting with the Portugal international.

Ronaldo could be set to cut short his time at United just months after joining amid the current crisis at the club.

According to The Sun, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is starting to believe that coming back to the club he joined as an 18-year-old was a mistake.

And he has become frustrated with the way United play while also becoming disillusioned with life under Rangnick.
