Non-league club 'no comment' after Edinson Cavani spotted nearby

Manchester United could do with Edinson Cavani being available right now.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s form has collapsed and United are low on alternatives for the 37-year-old.

Edinson Cavani has not featured for United since the draw at Burnley in early February, missing time since with injury.

He was nowhere to be seen as United drew 0-0 against Watford on Saturday, but he has been seen in a different part of the country.

Cavani spotted in Derbyshire

Cavani was out enjoying the English spring sunshine at the weekend, taking some time out with his family. He tagged a picture on Instagram with Bakewell, Derbyshire, prompting an amusing response from a football club in the region.

Bakewell Town FC posted on Twitter they have ‘no comment’ on Cavani travelling to the area.

Bakewell Town are a non-league side founded in 1883, who play in the Central Midlands Football League.

During his injury absence, Cavani was previously spotted watching boxing in Manchester, watching Uruguayan female fighter Chris Namus, on the undercard of the Amir Khan v Kell Brook bout.

What has Rangnick said about Cavani?

United have a big match upcoming against Manchester City next Sunday. It would be a help if the striker is available.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of the Watford game, Rangnick said: “He hasn’t been training with us so he won’t be available for tomorrow’s game.”

Prior to the Brighton game earlier in the month, Rangnick said: “The doctor came to see me and then I spoke to Edi and I told them let’s wait until this morning before the game and see if treatment can make things any better.“But then I spoke to him today before we had breakfast and he said to me that the pain is too big and he cannot play.”

United fans would like it if Cavani could push himself and play, given the importance of the matches ahead.

If he comes back and scores a crucial goal against City, or in forthcoming matches against Atletico Madrid, Tottenham or Liverpool, all this frustration at his missed time will be forgiven.
