Cavani spotted in deep conversation with Tuanzebe before Man Utd win at PSG

Edinson Cavani was spotted offering advice to Axel Tuanzebe ahead of Manchester United's victory at Champions League opponents PSG.

The Mirror says Tuanzebe helped keep Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe quiet at the Parc Des Princes as Marcus Rashford's late goal gave the Red Devils a 2-1 win.

The performance of the young centre-back caught many by surprise and saw him earn plenty of plaudits.

His display comes after he was spotted in a lengthy discussion with Cavani as United warmed up in their final training session at Carrington before heading to the French capital.

Whilst the details of their discussion are not clear, Cavani and Tuanzebe were engaged in a deep conversation for over a minute as they jogged around the pitch for the warm-up.

Cavani appeared to be gesturing potential scenarios and giving Tuanzebe advice as he listened intently with some speculating he may have been giving him some tips on how to stop his former PSG team-mates.
