Edinson Cavani is among the names that will be leaving Manchester United in this summer transfer. The Uruguayan striker has decided to move on from his old club after spending two years at Old Trafford. He along with Nemanja Matic, and Juan Mata can make way for others at the end of the season. But before they move on, the three players made a mark in their farewell game for the Red Devils, making it even harder for their fans to see them going.
Edinson Cavani, in particular, received a special request from a special fan after United's win over Brentford on Tuesday. A video of a girl hugging Cavani and requesting him to not leave has gone viral on social media platforms. A TV presenter named Alison Bender shared the video in which the girl is seen crying after meeting her idol.
She also gets an autograph from Cavani and then requests him to wear her 'Miss Kick' hairband. The Man United player obliges to this special request and wears the black hairband without any hesitation. He then leaves with the band on while the girl still stands in disbelief of the greatest moment she had in her life.

Cavani looking to move to Boca Juniors
Coming to Cavani's move from United this summer, the Uruguayan striker is expected to move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors after his stint with Man United ends this summer. According to a report by the Argentine version of AS, the 35-year-old is reportedly on the transfer radar of Argentine giants Boca Juniors, who are willing to sign him up in a Bosman move ahead of the new season.
Juniors were interested in signing Cavani last year as well but the forward signed a one-year extension with the Red Devils. However, with his contract expiring and him not being in the long-term plan of United's new manager Erik ten Hag, Cavani may make a move finally.
