Manchester United legend Scholes talked about his old club’s decision to sign Cavani before the summer window closed. He believes that the Red Devils should not give the 33-year-old Uruguayan star a two-year contract.
"We can only wait to see Cavani's performance. Obviously, when he was in his prime, he had always been a top center in the world. There is no doubt about that, but now he is 33 years old. It looks like he is about to retire, and he didn't participate in many games at Paris Saint-Germain last season." Scholes said.
"If placed five or six years ago, he would be a great signing. He might take us to another level, but now I don't think he will bring such an effect."
"Manchester United's current striker needs a center, but if you sign Cavani, you should use the loan method and take a few months to respond, just like Henrik Larsson did."
"Henrik Larsson was a great forward. He was 33 or 34 years old when he came to Manchester United. He filled a small part of our vacancy, but that was exactly what we needed."
"I think Cavani should have signed like that, instead of giving him a two-year contract when he was 33 years old. I think this is strange, but Cavani would definitely not think so. I am sure he is satisfied with himself. Contracts."
