Edinson Cavani to wait longer for Manchester United debut. The striker will miss the Premier League match against Newcastle.
Edinson Cavani will not make his Manchester United debut in their next Premier League game at Newcastle due to having to quarantine, but will be available to face former side Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
United’s new number seven, who arrived on Deadline Day on a free transfer, will still be self-isolating when the club travel to Newcastle on October 17.
The striker could feature three days later against PSG in Paris, although the 33-year-old may not be deemed fit in time to face his old club as he is unable to train with his new team-mates until the quarantine is over.
Having been a free agent, Cavani has not been part of an elite sport ‘bubble’ meaning he is not exempt from the 14-day quarantine which people arriving from France must adhere to under current coronavirus guidelines.
