Cavani, who arrived on a free transfer in October after his release from Paris Saint-Germain, looked set to leave after just one season after growing unhappy with life in Manchester.

But after returning from an FA suspension and recovering from a series of niggling injuries, the 34-year-old, who was wanted by Boca Juniors, has scored eight goals in his last seven games and has been convinced to stay by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cavani has scored 15 goals in 35 games this season and could yet end the campaign with a Europa League winners’ medal with United set to take on Villarreal in the final on May 26.

Cavani is also hopeful of making the Uruguay squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, one of the reasons behind his decision to stay in the Premier League.
