Walter Guglielmone has confirmed that Edinson Cavani has an agreement with Manchester United.
Cavani will be hoping to take the Premier League by storm ahead of his 34th birthday in February, having proved his worth in Italy, France and with the Uruguay national side.
His agent, and brother, Walter Guglielmone has now confirmed that his move is imminent, without offering any details.
In a brief chat with Inside Futbol, Guglielmone said: “It’s true.
“There is an agreement [with Manchester United].”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to welcome Cavani on a two-year-deal which is said to be worth £200,000-a-week, and he is likely to join the squad following the upcoming international break.
A more pressing matter for the Norwegian boss is the visit of Tottenham on Sunday, and three points will help them move above today’s opponents and into the top half of the table.
He said before the encounter: “It was a good exercise down at Brighton, it’s been a good week.
“Let’s make sure we get into the international break with a good result.
“[There were] many good performances [at Brighton] and that’s where we want to get to and need to get to, so there are players fighting for every position on the pitch.

“I think that drives people on and makes them improve and, to be part of Man United, you should be able to have competition and know that you have to perform. So I was very happy with what the lads did.”
Before adding of the potential battle between Harry Kane and Harry Maguire: “Harry’s one of the top strikers in the world and you’re just happy that he’s back fit after the injury he had last year. We’ll do our best to keep him quiet.
“We have a Harry back there who is looking forward to that battle. Harry had a knock after the league the game, but he should be okay.”
