Ferdinand backs Mason Greenwood to benefit most from Cavani’s arrival at Man United

Cavani joins Man United

Manchester United, after a quiet window overall, had a pretty busy deadline day.

In total, the Red Devils managed to land four new faces on Monday.

Perhaps the most high-profile of those additions came in the form of Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan joined Manchester United on a free transfer after his PSG contract expired over the summer:

Greenwood should benefit from Cavani arrival

Cavani may now bee 33 years of age, but there is no doubt he is still a quality striker.

Obviously, it is unlikely he will be able to start week in week out for the Reds.

But just having the veteran hitman in your squad would no doubt improve things at least somewhat anyway.

Rio Ferdinand is seemingly of the same opinion when it comes to the man who netted 200 goals in 301 PSG games.

Speaking after United landed Cavani, the ex-defender voiced the opinion that Cavani can help all of United’s strikers whilst going on to claim Mason Greenwood will benefit the most:

“I highlighted Cavani as a player to buy during the last transfer window because we’ve got three supremely talented young strikers who need help.

“They’re going to need assistance. Martial is a prime example because he’s going to be suspended now (after his red card against Tottenham) and we need someone to step in.

“The way Cavani plays, the way he applies himself, the way he trains, his experience, what he could teach the likes of Mason Greenwood.

“He’s scored so many goals and won multiple trophies. For Greenwood to watch him on a daily basis, he will benefit the most. Is he long term? No, he’s not.

“But I played in a team where we brought Henrik Larsson in. You ask the strikers like Wayne Rooney if he brought value to the squad? The answer is yes.

“If Cavani can have that effect with this group of players then it’s worthwhile. Listen, he’s a top player. Experienced, gets goals, he’s someone who will be good value for the club.”

It is also worth noting that with Anthony Martial suspended for Man United’s next game, Cavani could be making his debut sooner rather than later.
