Cavani: One Man Utd teammate said 'if you go, I'll cry'

Edinson Cavani has explained signing his new contract with Manchester United.

The veteran penned a new 12 month deal this week.

He told 2 de Punta: “There was a moment, I said to myself, I cannot leave here like that. It's a matter of the heart, of pride.

"I said to myself: 'you must give yourself the chance to live another great season, to fight to win titles with this club, to leave your mark in this club, as you have done elsewhere'.

"For the people, for this affection. My teammates, who told me: 'don't leave Edi, we love you'. One of them said to me: 'if you go, I'm going to want to cry'."
