Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has received clarity from Edinson Cavani regarding his Manchester United future but refused to specify whether the striker would stay at the club.

Cavani, 34, is approaching the last two months of his contract and there has to be a mutual agreement between the player and United to trigger the one-year extension in his deal.

Cavani's father has already outlined the centre forward's intention to leave United at the end of the season and the Manchester Evening News revealed Cavani declared himself unavailable for some recent matches, despite being cleared to play by medical staff. The Uruguayan arrived for a free on deadline day in October and has started 14 times for United, scoring seven goals.

Manchester City have confirmed Sergio Aguero, their record goalscorer, will leave after a decade when his contract expires in June yet United are refusing to shed light on Cavani, whose time at the club could amount to seven months.
