Cavani spent the entire summer searching for a new club, and he came to an agreement with Premier League giants Man Utd in the final hours of the transfer window, signing a one-year deal with the option to extend for a second season.

And it was revealed on the Ian McGarry and Duncan Castles’ Transfer Window Podcast that the Red Devils handed the 33-year-old a stunning €9m signing bonus, purely for agreeing to make the move to Manchester.

Duncan Castles discovered via contacts at Benfica – who themselves had tried to land the striker in the summer – that he had been persuaded to play in the Premier League as a result of this handsome bonus.

Cavani will wear the famous number seven jersey for the Red Devils, as he hopes to fire the goals to turn their fortunes around following a dismal start to the new season. Man Utd have lost two of their three Premier League matches, and were battered 6-1 by Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.

These poor results led to the signings of defender Alex Telles from Porto, and Cavani as a free agent. The ex-Napoli star boasts one of the best scoring records in Europe over the past decade, averaging 24 goals a season since joining I Partenopei in 2010.

The forward bagged 200 goals in all competitions during his seven years in Paris, winning six league titles in his time there, and collecting the golden boot in two of those campaigns.
