Manchester United will keep Edinson Cavani despite re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
United have signed a deal to sign Ronaldo from Juventus, with the Portuguese star set to take charge for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
However, United have no plans to sell Cavani before the transfer window closes, as reported by Manchester Evening News.

Ronaldo looked poised to join rivals Manchester City but will now return to United for a £19.4 million transfer.
Cavani has yet to play for United this season, as he has been given a long hiatus following his Copa America involvement with Uruguay and a subsequent personal problem.
Cavani stays at United despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford
In his first season with United, Cavani scored 19 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions
Towards the end of last season, Cavani, 34, signed a one-year contract extension with United.
During his first campaign with the club, the veteran striker scored 17 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions.
Ronaldo’s return will likely push Cavani down the pecking order, but it’s possible the two veteran forwards could play together should Solskjaer change his system.
Cavani is back in training with United and can return to the squad on Sunday for the game against Wolves.
