Manchester United’s new signing, 33, is said to be devoted to his strict fitness regime and prides himself on staying in elite shape. 

He has to quarantine for 14 days having arrived in the UK and his involvement could be delayed until October 19 but in the meantime is working hard.

Edinson Cavani keeps himself in shape and will be one of Manchester United’s fittest players

The striker posted a video of himself on the treadmill jogging in full United training gear. 

According to the Athletic, he will arrive as one of the fittest players in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. 

A source told them: ‘He is no fat, pure muscle, like a Greek god.

‘His body fat percentage is astonishing. He is fit and intense, and amazing in the air. He runs like a maniac.’ 

A source from Napoli told The Athletic: ‘He is a top, top professional. At Napoli, most players finish training and go around the corner to the golf course.

‘But he went for runs by himself and he would be the first in and last out.

‘He is kind of like Cristiano (Ronaldo), very on top of his body, a top professional and quite selfish on the pitch.

‘He wants to take every penalty and finish every counter-attack — a proper killer on the pitch.’

There are also parallels with Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who made a huge impact at United and is still going strong at AC Milan aged 39. 

If he can provide the same cutting edge and drive to win as the Swede he will prove a shrewd acquisition for United.  

Cavani, 33, should be able to play well into his mid thirties given his excellent conditioning
