'Cavani wasn't part of Manchester United's plan' - Neville questions last-minute move for ex-PSG striker

Gary Neville believes Edinson Cavani is another panic buy by Manchester United, although he hopes the striker will thrive in the Premier League.

The Uruguay international has been a success in France with Paris Saint-Germain and Italy with Palermo and Napoli, while United legend Ryan Giggs has backed him to succeed at Old Trafford as well.

Although ex-United and England right-back Neville is confident the 33-year-old will be a welcome addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, he suspects he was low down the club's list of targets.

"They need a striker, they need a forward. My emotion when I heard about the deal on Saturday was the same probably as when Radamel Falcao signed, when Zlatan Ibrahimovic signed, Odion Ighalo signed. It’s very last-minute, it’s come out of nowhere," Neville said on Sky Sports.

"There is an element of thrill to it, an element of intrigue because he is one of the world’s best strikers in the last 10 years. You hope he can come to Old Trafford and set the Premier League on fire.

"There is also an element of ‘how have we ended up here?’ Manchester United two or three months ago had a great coronavirus period.

"The club had acted with great class, Marcus Rashford's work, finished third in the league and you just thought: 'Right, that's as close as they can get to Manchester City with the team they currently have and they can get three or four signings and potentially close the gap this season'.

"We're here on the eve of the transfer deadline day and nothing has been done apart from Donny van de Beek, who at this moment in time can't break into a packed midfield.

"So Cavani by Monday would be welcomed, he’s different to the other strikers. I hope he comes fit, firing, he's always worked hard, always had a great attitude and work ethic, so I don't think there's any doubt about that. He's not the type, I don't think, to come for a swan song or a pay off, I think he's got more about him.
