Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently confirmed that the club is looking to extend Edinson Cavani’s contract. The Uruguayan striker joined the Red Devils on a one-year deal in October, with a clause of a further year.
Solskjaer is convinced that Cavani has a few more years left in him and trusts him to help with the growth of the younger strikers in the squad such as Antony Martial, Marcus Rashdord, and Mason Greenwood.
Edinson Cavani has started only one Premier League game but has managed to score three goals in eight appearances. He also came off the bench to set up Bruno Fernandes’ goal in a 2-2 draw against Leicester City.
Edinson Cavani Has Earned the Trust of His Manager
The Norwegian manager believes that Cavani is more than just an impact substitute. He sees him as a starter and is planning on using him in the team’s starting eleven more regularly. Solksjaer has also highlighted the player’s positive influence on the team, as well as his impressive work rate.
Cavani’s integration was delayed as he had to self-isolate for two weeks after his arrival from France. Once he was able to train with the squad, he had to build up match fitness as he hadn’t played in a competitive game since leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of June.
The Weight of the Number Seven Doesn’t Bother Cavani
During the season the Uruguayan striker was also ruled out for short periods because of several minor injuries. This, however, didn’t hamper Edinson Cavani’s confidence. As one of the best strikers in the world, he showed his readiness to lead Manchester United’s attack by requesting the mythical number seven. The same number worn by club legends such as George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
While Cavani’s signing was met with skepticism in October, today more and more Manchester United fans are starting to believe that the striker can serve them well. An opinion shared by the club’s management who is looking to activate the player’s second year of the contract.
You know the saying, “Like father, like son?” Well, with these celebrity dad-son pairs, that saying couldn’t be more true. Looking at some of the boys, it’s a bit like seeing their famous dads when they were younger. So, who are the lucky sons who take after their dads so well? Let’s see!
Celeb Dads and Their Sons
Many of the famous Hollywood dads are known for being ultra-photogenic with jawlines to die for, heart-melting grins, and an overall godly posture. How can someone replicate that? Apparently, they can! A look is all it takes to spot their doppelgänger sons. And, we must admit, these five pairs we’ve picked take the ‘twin’ game to the next level.
Mel Gibson & Milo Gibson
Milo is one of Mel Gibson’s nine children. Mel and Milo couldn’t be more alike even if they tried. They not only look so much alike, but Milo is also following in his father’s footsteps into acting. His dad even directed him in the movie Hacksaw Ridge.
Clint Eastwood & Scott Eastwood
It may be difficult to say these two are absolute doppelgängers, but that’s probably because of their big age difference. Clint, 90, and his son Scott, 34, are more than half a century apart. However, if you remember Clint’s western years, then you can imagine how these two are quite alike. Much like Mel and Milo Gibson, Clint has also directed his son, Scott.
Jude Law & Rafferty Law
Rafferty Law is one of those sons who doesn’t want to be in their celeb dad’s shadow. He’s started making a name for himself in professional modeling. The resemblance between the two is undeniable. Or, as Jude Law would say, it’s uncanny.
Ice Cube & O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Now, these look more like brothers rather than father and son, wouldn’t you agree? O’Shea Jackson Jr. even portrayed his dad in the biographical film Straight Outta Compton about N.W.A. with his dad saying that “he was born to play the part.” Aside from acting, Ice Cube’s son has also entered the music scene.
Rob Lowe & John Lowe
We all know that a strong jawline and snow-white smile can belong to none other than Rob Lowe. Yes and no. Rob’s two sons have inherited both his signature traits, including those ocean blue eyes. Out of the two, it’s John (seen in the picture) who looks a tad bit more like his celebrity dad.
