to have the same impact as the likes of

Zlatan Ibrahimovic


Robin Van Persie

, and

Henrik Larsson

. These players came to the Theatre of Dreams as experienced players and made huge impact on United’s performance.

Edinson Cavani joined Manchester United as a free agent this summer to help the youngsters improve their attacking skills. Yorke believes the South American will prove to be a shrewd addition, with the 1999 Treble winner telling Sky Sports:

“You can see what he has brought to the table. Often when you bring in a big personality like Cavani, a younger player is taking that [in].

“We have seen that with Zlatan before and we have seen Van Persie come in and do a job and Larsson as well in that category. You can see Cavani has come in and done that.

“What I like about Cavani is he is totally different to the rest of the players. His movement is outstanding and he is a seasoned campaigner. Although he hasn’t played in our league, that hasn’t deterred him and he wants to prove that he can play at this level even at this stage [of his career].

“When you have that combination and that type of player, you are always going to bring along the younger players and they seem to have taken to him.

“It was a great masterstroke from Ole by bringing him in.”
