Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani, has said he won’t have stayed at the club if he knew they were planning to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

United finalized the transfer for Ronaldo in the closing stages of the summer transfer window in a £19.8million deal.

While Cavani has hailed the 37-year-old as a “great professional”, he has now confessed he would have left if the deal was completed earlier.

“Speaking the truth, as I always tell the truth, as it should be, at the moment it happened, I thought it was good that Manchester signed Cristiano.

“Knowing a little about the world of football today, the first thing I did was call my brother and I said, ‘Fernando, if this had happened a week ago, I would have asked you to sign with another club’,” Cavani stated.
