According to a statement released by his father earlier today, Cavani feels uncomfortable due to the infamous incidence that made him labelled a racist.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken on the positive impact that Cavani has had both on and off the pitch for the short period he has been with the team.
Despite receiving the encouraging words from the gaffer, Luis (Cavani’s father) had this to say “my son is not happy in England and wants to return nearer his family. He wants to play in South America.” he further continued to tell the TyC sports network that Cavani would like to play in a team that fights for important trophies. The latter statement is understood not to go well with United supporters who believe that the club is fighting for trophies.
