Ander Herrera explains warning he sent to Edinson Cavani before Man Utd transfer

Ander Herrera has opened up on his chat with Edinson Cavani ahead of his Manchester United transfer.

Former Red Devils favourite Herrera will square off against his former club as Paris Saint-Germain host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Edinson Cavani could make his United debut against his former club after switching the French capital for Old Trafford on a free transfer.

Herrera has revealed he chatted to Cavani and told him to jump at the chance to head to the "biggest club in England".

But he also sounded a warning – that once you are a Manchester United player, it stays with you for life.

Despite the pressure, Herrera says his former team-mate is made for the club and backed him to be a huge hit.

“I think we spoke about five minutes before he said yes,” Herrera told The Telegraph.

“He called me and said, ‘I need to make a decision now and you are the last person I am speaking to before I make that decision’.

"I told him to play for Manchester United is an opportunity that is for the rest of your life.


"To play for other clubs in the Premier League you are a Premier League player but if you are a Manchester United player then you are a Manchester United player for life.

“It is different. I have been all around the world and been recognised as a Manchester United player and I have the respect of everyone.

"I think Cavani is also made for Old Trafford; the way he fights for every ball – even the way he celebrates goals, he is a very Manchester United player.

"I told him he was going to play for the biggest club in the UK. I don’t think he needed to hear that from me but mine was the last opinion.”
