EDINSON CAVANI has penned a heartfelt goodbye message to Manchester United ahead of his summer exit.

The iconic Uruguayan will be a free agent when his contract expires at the end of June.

Cavani, 35, only featured 20 times for United this term and only managed to score twice.

Last season, he netted 17 including a long range stunner in the 1-1 draw with Fulham at Old Trafford.

But his decrease in goals is a regret for Cavani, who says he “wanted to contribute more” this term.

In an interview with United’s website, he said: “I sincerely have nothing but words of gratitude towards the fans and supporters of Manchester United.

“Honestly, they have shown me a lot of respect from the very first moment I arrived.

“I think they’ve greatly recognised all the hard work I’ve always tried to put in in the best way possible, giving my best for this team.

“I really am very grateful, and I’ll be leaving here with a happy memory of that affection they showed me and always displayed.

“I wanted to contribute more this season.

“One of the things that has left me with a slightly bitter taste is that when we had a highly enjoyable and pretty decent [2020/21] season, we weren’t able to have the supporters along with us.

“And now, this season, with the fans coming back into the grounds and stadiums, I haven’t really been able to have the kind of campaign, if I’m being honest, on a personal front that I would really have liked.”

Cavani is one of many United players set to leave Old Trafford this summer.

The club will embark on a new adventure with Erik ten Hag and the likes of Nemanja Matic, Lee Grant, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are expected to move on.
