Cavani and Telles are Man Utd hope

Manchester United are strengthened by Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles in the final days of the transfer window.

This transfer window has already shown that most of the talk of the European giants about the crisis due to the coronavirus is nothing more than excuses and information needs to be filtered through a fine sieve. Manchester United are not much different from their competitors in this regard.

The Red Devils signed Donnie Van de Beek, which in the future strengthens the central axis of the team. However, in the first rounds the Dutchman proved that he needed adaptation and a clearer understanding of the team's game. Now Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles are joining the Red Devils.

If there are no questions with the transfer of Telles, since Luke Shaw has been failing in his position for several seasons, then there are questions for Cavani's arrival. As for me, this transfer is a tracing paper for the purchase of Zlatan Ibrahimovic under Jose Mourinho. It seems that Solskjaer took the path of least resistance, buying a pillar on the tip that can hold the ball, develop an attack, and ram any defense.

I do not exclude the fact that this transition was made for the universalization of the attack, so that, if necessary, release the "Kraken" and he could score the ball at the right moment. But given how little Manchester United created chances in the last matches, Solskjaer doesn't have a plan A. Not mentioning a plan B.

A vivid confirmation of this was the game against Tottenham, where, despite the score, United did very little in attack. And if not for another penalty by Bruno Fernandes, this could have been the collapse of Ole Gunnar's career at Old Trafford. This game also showed the need for a quality center-back, which Manchester United need even more than Telles.
