Edinson Cavani could be forced to wait for his Manchester United debut after being forced into self-isolation following his move to Old Trafford.

As revealed by Sports messaging, talks between the 33-year-old and United quickly moved forward on the last day of the transfer window, before putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with United on a salary of around £ 210,000 a week after taxes .

Other than a brief vacation in Ibiza, Cavani has lived among the general population in France rather than in a secure bubble after seeing his contract at Paris Saint-Germain.

According to UK government guidelines, anyone arriving in the country from France must be quarantined for 14 days, which would see Cavani having to delay his debut.

Having to self-isolate at home for a fortnight now, that would mean Cavani would be available the day after United’s next game against Newcastle on Saturday 17th October.

According to TimeUnited officials are asking for clarification on whether Cavani should end the mandatory quarantine given that most elite athletes are exempt from the rule.

However, the forward is unlikely to be exempt from becoming a free agent earlier this summer and living with the mainstream.

News that Cavani could miss United’s next Premier League game will be a blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who will be without Anthony Martial after the Frenchman’s red card against Tottenham on Sunday.

Cavani revealed on Tuesday that he and his girlfriend Jocelyn Burgardt tested positive for coronavirus more than a month ago after vacationing in Ibiza with former PSG teammates Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes.

Cavani and Burgardt then made a full recovery before revealing that he was almost considering quitting football.

“The health of your family comes first,” Cavani told Argentina’s Dos de Punta radio show.

“Of course, I considered the idea of ​​quitting football.

“It’s true that I succeeded in this option and this possibility of stopping playing and staying in the countryside, to devote myself to my life in the countryside.

“We suffered from the coronavirus with my family and with my girlfriend. The truth is, it was bad because of the fear it arouses. Thank goodness we have recovered and evolved well and here we are.

The veteran striker then revealed his joy at joining United, where he insisted he was eager to start.

Cavani said: “Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world, so it’s a real honor to be here. I worked really hard in my free time and can’t wait to compete and represent this amazing club.

“I have played in front of some of football’s most passionate fans in my career and I know it will be the same in Manchester. I can’t wait to experience the atmosphere of Old Trafford, when fans can safely return.
