EDINSON CAVANI WILL enjoy his Manchester United debut against his old club PSG next week.

Cavani has had to self isolate for a fortnight since joining the Red Devils on transfer deadline day as a free agent.

Edinson Cavani will miss Manchester United’s clash with Newcastle

The striker is currently isolating but could make his debut against PSG

That rules him out of this weekend’s trip to Newcastle but he will be allowed to make the trip back to Paris on Monday for Tuesday’s Champions League showdown.

Cavani, 33, has been training at home in Manchester to get up to speed and will be on the bench in the Parc des Princes but with every chance of him coming on for an emotional late substitute appearance even without the fans.

The veteran Uruguayan striker scored 200 goals in 301 games for PSG between 2013 and this year but was let go in the summer when his contract ran out.

He has battled injury problems over the two years and not started a game since March in a 2-0 home win over Borussia Dortmund.

Cavani was actually part of the PSG squad that was knocked out the Champions League by Manchester United on away goals in March 2019.

Having won the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford they lost the second 3-1 at home with Marcus Rashford scoring a last gasp penalty just after Cavani had come on as a sub.

SunSport previously revealed that United attempted to find a loophole to get their new signing into Carrington earlier.

Cavani revealed he and his partner have both had Covid-19 – but he has not been part of an elite athlete bubble as he left PSG in June.

His absence is another blow to boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United look to bounce back from their Spurs humiliation against Newcastle.

The Norwegian is already without striker Anthony Martial after he saw red in the 6-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman will begin the first of his three match suspension against the Toon and will also sit out games against Chelsea and Arsenal.
