Edinson Cavani of Manchester United reacts to Barcelona transfer rumors on social media.
At the end of the transfer window, Edinson Cavani will still be a Manchester United player.
Edinson Cavani has stated that he is committed to Manchester United this season, despite claims that Barcelona was in talks about a late-season transfer. The Uruguayan turned off the chance to return to South America with Boca Juniors by signing a new one-year contract deal at Old Trafford earlier this summer.
However, Cavani’s future has been called into question following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, who wants to steal his No. 7 shirt.
Cavani, on the other hand, remains in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the coming season.
Barcelona was reportedly negotiating for Cavani behind the scenes earlier this morning on deadline day, according to rumors from Catalonia.
While conversations with Cavani’s entourage were intensive, United were never willing to let him go.
Cavani will “100%” not be joining Barcelona, according to Fabrizio Romano, and El Matador himself confirmed the news on Instagram.
He also used a tensing bicep and a red circle emoji to show his dedication to United.
Cavani is anticipated to stay in England for one more season before moving on to a new challenge.
Daniel James is one of the players who left United on deadline day.

Anthony Martial is said to have turned down a loan move to Lyon today.
Lyon made a late bid for the forward, according to L’Equipe, but he chose to stay at United and battle for his spot.
Despite being linked with a move to West Ham, Jesse Lingard will remain at Old Trafford.
