Man Utd defender Lindelof hoping Cavani stays to play in front of full Old Trafford

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof hopes Edinson Cavani will stay.

Cavani was instrumental in United's 6-2 demolition of Roma in their Europa League semi-final first leg on Thursday night, scoring twice and setting up two others.

It was put to Lindelof, in an interview with MUTV, that Cavani had never played — or celebrated in front of — United supporters at Old Trafford.

“That's a shame," Lindelof said.

“I think he would have enjoyed scoring goals in front of our fans and I think everyone is missing them.

"Hopefully, we can get them back because a night like this deserves fans."
