According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Edinson Cavani has the same impact on Manchester United’s young attackers as Teddy Sheringham did in the late 1990s.

Sheringham joined Manchester United in 1997 and helped develop the club’s young attackers, including Solskjaer himself, in his role as a relative veteran of Sir Alex Ferguson’s forward line.

According to Solsjkaer, Cavani’s behavior at Carrington and on the Old Trafford pitch had a similar impact on the development of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

“Teddy came up with his experience in 1997 and I’ve learned a lot from him. I think him [Edinson Cavani] stepped in and had almost a similar impact, “Solskjaer told Sky Sports ahead of Saturday’s game against Arsenal, live in the Sky Sports Premier League.

“Another Fernandes unlikely in January”

United turned their luck on the pitch last January when they signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon. The Portuguese midfielder had remarkable results in England in the first twelve months.

Solskjaer says fans shouldn’t expect another transformative signing this winter due to the financial impact of the pandemic, but said the club has continued discussions on recruiting and will reassess their situation ahead of the summer market.

“The world is a different place, the financial world is also a different than a year ago. Let’s see where we are in the summer,” he said.
