The 33-year-old was one of the five players to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men this summer, with Donny van de Beek, Alex Telles, Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri also completing moves to the Premier League giants.

“Yes, I spoke with Ander a lot, as well as other team-mates, like Angel Di Maria, who I was also with at Paris,” Cavani told Man United’s official website on Friday.

“It was genuinely getting to the last minute, and I called Ander to have a chat.

“I have a lot of admiration for Ander, for the kind of person he is and I had the feeling that his words were going to help me out, by telling me a bit about what it was like at United.
