Manchester United seems to have been able to solve their scoring problems with the announcement of Uruguayan international.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Jude Ighalo and Mason Greenwood in the attack but it appears Manchester United haven't been clinical in front of goal so far this season.

On transfer deadline day, Manchester United moved to sign Edinson Cavani as a free agent.

The former Napoli star reportedly two-year deal worth €11 million (£10m/$13m) per season with Old Trafford outfit.

He left Paris Saint-Germain last season as a free agent following his record of 200 goals with the Ligue 1 gaints.

He has now revealed that former Manchester United star, Andrea Herrera played a key role to his move to Manchester.

According to Cavani, he was convinced to put pen to paper to sign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side despite interest from Benfica and Atletico Madrid.

“I spoke with Ander a lot, as well as other team-mates, like Angel Di Maria, who I was also with at Paris,” Cavani told United's official website. "It was genuinely getting to the last minute and I called Ander to have a chat.

“I have a lot of admiration for Ander, for the kind of person he is, and I had the feeling that his words were going to help me out, by telling me a bit about what it was like at United. So yes, it’s true that after I’d finished talking with Ander, we came to an agreement here with the club.

“I hadn’t known Ander for too long, but we formed and enjoyed a close friendship during that time at PSG, and, today, we are still very good mates.”

Recall that likes Of Angel Di Maria played for Manchester United but left after one season as he wasn't settled in England. Also, Herrera left Old Trafford two seasons ago as a free agent.

The Uruguay international added: “I was really keen to come here. I'm very motivated by the idea of joining this great club and so, well, here we are today.

“Yes, we did have a lot of different options, and these at a time where things aren't easy, neither in sport nor in the world in general.

"However I was very attracted by the chance to play in English football, and what’s more, for Manchester United, so that was a really big attraction for me, and a huge motivation too, because I feel that I still have a big desire to compete, to work hard and to give the best of myself."

Cavani will be hoping to start for Manchester United in their next Premier League game due to suspension to Anthony Martial. 

Recall that Martial was sent off against Tottenham Hotspur for a tussle with Eric Lamela.

Cavani concluded: "Let’s hope that I can be up to the task and can represent this club, and along with everyone, help take it to the top.“
