Manchester United will have to pay Edinson Cavani about €2million, if they decide not to extend his one-year contract, ESPN reports.
However, the club is waiting to see how Cavani has recovered from injury which makes him a doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash at Chelsea, before making a decision about his future.
United are happy with the Uruguay striker’s impact since he arrived on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
Both sides have the option to terminate the deal this summer, but a penalty fee will apply if United are the ones to pull the plug.
Cavani is wanted by Boca Juniors, but is believed to be happy at Old Trafford and is open to staying for a second season.
The 34-year-old has scored seven goals in 24 appearances so far this campaign.
