Edinson Cavani is one of the best strikers of the generation. Even though the Uruguay international is currently edging the twilight of his career, he hasn’t given any loose performance in this campaign. In contrast, the 34-year-old showed a positive approach even when he wasn’t getting enough chances. 

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have failed to hold consistency in this campaign. Even though youngster Mason Greenwood has shown the spark in some games, he has made many poor decisions, which suggest the youngster still needs some grooming.

United have a lot of talent. But the youngsters lack the maturity to perform in big games. There are very few players who understand how to win games better than Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo. Therefore, Rangnick should use the expertise of such veteran players in challenging games. The German manager has to find a way to put both the players in the same starting line-up.

Cavani’s commitment shows that he is ready to contribute, and the German manager should provide him chances to showcase his worth in the second half of the season.
