Manchester United Coach Ralph Rangnick has confirmed that Edison Cavani will stay at Manchester United until the end of the season.

The former PSG star has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

Cavani has been linked with a move to Barcelona and a return to South America.

Cavani has promised Rangnick that he is ready to end the season at Manchester United.

"I told him that if it was up to me I would want him to stay," Rangnick said.

"I had a conversation with him [on Thursday]. He came into my office and we spoke for almost half an hour and he told me he will definitely stay and would want to stay until the end of the season.

"Not only because I told him that he should stay or has to stay, he did it on his own behalf and he told me that I can rely on him to stay until the end of the season and give his very best and be a role model for the young players.

"If he should play from the start, he's available and he's happy to play.

"Even if he's not playing, he will be trying to be the best possible role model for the other players and for me this is good news."

Cavani will be hoping to get a chance to play as Manchester United host Aston Villa in the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Monday.
