Club legend Ryan Giggs tips Edinson Cavani to make a similar immediate impact at Manchester United as Bruno Fernandes.

Ryan Giggs has backed new signing Edinson Cavani to make an immediate impact at Manchester United.

During a hectic conclusion to the summer transfer window, the Premier League giants moved to sign the experienced forward on a free transfer.

Although pundits and supporters alike have questioned the arrival of the Uruguay international, Giggs is hopeful that the 33-year-old will match fellow recent addition Bruno Fernandes in hitting the ground running at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Youtube channel Webby and O'Neill, the Wales boss said: "I faced Cavani in my second game for Wales and he was better than Luis Suarez in the game. I didn't think he was that good.

"He was a real handful. He hasn't played for a long time so he might be a little bit rusty, but you're getting a proper centre forward who can lead the line, which a lot of fans have been crying out for.

"We have Marcus (Rashford), (Anthony) Martial who is half a winger, half a centre-forward. Cavani is a forward, a target man. He's got the experience. I'm hoping, just like Bruno has, he will make the players around him even better."

Cavani is expected to make his debut when United face Chelsea on Saturday evening.
