But the Uruguayan could have been plying his trade in the Premier League six years ago if Ferguson had successfully lured him away from Paris Saint-Germain.
The legendary Scottish manager spoke to the then PSG boss Laurent Blanc about a potential deal for the forward, according to the Daily Mail.
Though he turned down their advances with the player just one season into his PSG career.
The Red Devils eventually went onto sign Colombian star Radamel Falcao on loan.
However, he failed to hit the heights at Old Trafford, scoring just four Premier League goals while Cavani enjoyed a prolific spell in France.
Six years on, United have finally secured Cavani's services and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted to add him to his squad for this season.
"Edinson is an experienced ultimate professional who always gives everything for his team," he said.
"His goalscoring record for club and country is fantastic and we are delighted to sign a player of his calibre.
"He'll bring energy, power, leadership and a great mentality to the squad but, most importantly, he'll bring goals.
"He has had a brilliant career so far, winning trophies at almost every club he has played for, and he still has so much more to give at the highest level."
