Manchester United made four signings on deadline day – Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo.
Cavani who is the headline signing at United completed a one-year deal with an option for a further 12 months and is expected to wear the club’s number seven shirt.
“Clearly Edinson Cavani has the work-ethic, the hunger to be a success at Manchester United,” reported Sky Sports News’ James Cooper. “He’s been impressed by the project he’s been offered by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and in return Solskjaer has been impressed by Cavani.
“Solskjaer has said he will score goals. He won’t sit on the bench and he is someone who will deliver something they haven’t got with their other striking options.
“United are confident Cavani’s signing could have a similar effect to that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who arrived in the summer of 2016 at the age of 34.
“They believe Cavani’s experience and credentials would encourage the development of Mason Greenwood while also providing support for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, as well as adding a different attacking component for Solskjaer.”
Left-back Alex Telles who also completed a medical alongside Cavani at Old Trafford on Monday, was signed for a fee of £15.4m.
United also brought in 18-year-old Pellistri and signed Atlanta winger Amad Diallo, in a deal that could be worth up to £37.2m.
Diallo who only played 24 minutes in Serie A, will join Old Trafford in January.
