Edinson Cavani said thank you Manchester United fans for their support as he prepares to leave Old Trafford.

In an interview with the club’s website, the Uruguay international confirmed he will leave United when his contract expires at the end of June.

Cavani signed for United on deadline day 2020 and enjoyed an excellent second half of the season. His goals helped propel United into the Europa League final and secure a second place in the Premier League.

Although United originally wanted to leave last summer, United convinced him to extend his stay at Manchester for another season.

However, in his second season with the club, Cavani was limited to just nine starts in all competitions, contributing just two goals in a disappointing, injury-plagued season in which he was rarely fit.

The 35-year-old is one of many high-profile stars to leave United in the coming weeks as Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata are all out of contract.

“I sincerely have nothing but words of gratitude to the Manchester United fans and supporters,” Cavani said.

“Honestly they showed me a lot of respect from the moment I arrived. I think they really appreciated all the hard work I’ve always tried to do in the best possible way and do my best for this team.

“I am really very grateful and I will leave here with happy memories of the affection they have shown and always shown me.”
