Edinson Cavani Reveals He Snubbed Two European Giants for Manchester United

Edinson Cavani has revealed that he turned down two huge clubs to complete his transfer to Manchester United.

The Uruguayan told Italian publication MondoNapoli that his loyalty to former club Napoli ruled out a return to Serie A with one of their rivals.

Juventus and Inter were interested in the 33-year-old, whose contract at PSG came to an end last summer.

"I will always be grateful to them [Napoli fans]," Cavani said. "It is for this reason that I said no to many Italian clubs including Juventus, who called me often, and also Inter.

"I couldn't make such a gesture to the Neapolitans. If I think of Naples I think of joy, because I know that I have done so much for them and they continue to pay homage to me with all this."

Man Utd fans will be happy that Cavani decided to move to Old Trafford in the end, with the striker beginning to make an impact in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

Cavani has been in and out of the starting XI, but now has three goals in his last six appearances. Two of those came from the bench to help the Red Devils to a victory from two goals down against Southampton, and the veteran's character could be key in a young squad.

He faces a late fitness test to be ready to feature in the derby against Manchester City on Saturday, which has become even more vital after United crashed out of the Champions League mid-week.
