Adrian Durham insists Manchester United’s new signing Edinson Cavani is BETTER than present Purple Devils ace Anthony Martial.
The 33-year-old striker accomplished a transfer to Outdated Trafford on deadline day following his launch from Paris-Saint Germain earlier this summer time.
Cavani, who has gained the Golden Boot in each Ligue 1 and Serie A, joins on a one-year contract with the choice to increase for an extra yr.
It’s understood Cavani has signed a £175,000-a-week deal which is able to make him one of many highest paid gamers at Outdated Trafford.
When discussing Cavani’s impending arrival in Manchester, talkSPORT’s switch insider Alex Criminal stated: “There’s speak he’s going to put on the enduring No.7 jersey at Manchester United, worn by the likes of [Eric] Cantona, [David] Beckham, George Greatest and Michael Owen… however the much less stated about that the higher.”
Whereas questions have been requested over whether or not Cavani can adapt to a brand new nation and a brand new league at his superior age, Durham has no doubts about his capability.
“The factor with Cavani, he does work actually onerous,” stated the Drivetime host. “His shirt is drenched by the top of each single sport.”
Co-host Darren Gough then bought concerned, asking: “Is he higher than Martial?
And Durham replied: “Sure. On the steadiness of danger, you’d say, ‘yeah, let’s give it a go’.
“However it’s some huge cash and he doesn’t play centre-half both.”
Cavani scored 138 targets in 200 Ligue 1 appearances as he helped PSG win six top-flight titles after signing for £55million from Napoli in 2013.
The prolific striker may very well be thrown into motion with Anthony Martial set to start a three-match ban when United journey to Newcastle after the worldwide break.
Martial was given his marching orders for slapping Erik Lamela in Sunday’s outstanding 6-1 dwelling defeat to Tottenham.
