Berbatov warns Cavani over his dad’s Man Utd transfer comments

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has urged Edinson Cavani to ignore his father's advice and stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer.

Luis Cavani recently revealed his son, who has scored seven goals in 25 appearances this season, is unhappy at the club and will be seeking a summer move away from the UK.

The Uruguayan's impact has been there for all to see with United clearly in need of an out-an-out central striker and an exit would certainly cause Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a headache.

But Berbatov has played down Luis's comments and would like to see Cavani stay at the club.

"When I was a football player, my dad was involved in my career off the field. Edinson Cavani's dad plays a similar role for his son. Parents think they are doing the best for us, but that's not always the case," he told Betfair.

"Cavani's dad has claimed the striker is unhappy at United but perhaps Cavani didn't know what his dad was going to say.

"Maybe Cavani felt disappointed about not play recently – I don't know, I'm just trying to understand what might have happened – but you don't want these types of things out in the public, especially when you are integrated in the team in a good way and scoring goals.

"Sometimes, your dad, if he is acting like an agent, will act in your best interest. But it can backfire, as with any other agent. Like when Mino Raiola said Paul Pogba was unhappy – it doesn't necessarily help the player and his situation.

"In the end it's down to the player and what he wants. I would be very happy to see Cavani stay at United because he is bringing goals and experience to the team and creating competition for places.

    "I wouldn't be surprised if he left in the summer because football is business, and if he is homesick then I'm sure he would prefer to leave, but I would be happy to see him stay."
