Cavani up for Man Utd debut - and against Chelsea defender Thiago Silva

Edinson Cavani hopes to make his Manchester United debut this weekend against Chelsea.

Cavani could come up against former PSG teammate Thiago Silva on Saturday if he makes his United debut.

And the new United man has been discussing the prospect of playing against Silva, rather than with him.

He told EN24 News: "It will be great to be able to find him on the pitch. Thiago is very professional, because he works so hard in training and in the pre-match warm-ups. Well, it won't be easy!

"It will be complicated because he is a very good central defender and an excellent footballer.

"But it will still be a great experience."
