Redknapp: Man Utd signing Cavani a sign of desperation

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp feels Manchester United's swoop for Edinson Cavani is a sign of desperation.

He wrote for The Sun: "I think you all know I like a gamble now and again… but nothing like the one Manchester United have taken in signing Edinson Cavani.

"It was obvious they needed something even before last week's shocker against Spurs.

"The worrying thing was a few of them seemed to throw in the towel.

"But signing Cavani, 33, on over £200,000 a week on the final day of the transfer window did smack of desperation to me.

"I had people telling me eight weeks ago he was keen to come to England.

"When I heard the wages I just wished them good luck.

"So if he was someone United were that keen on signing, why did they leave it so late?"
