Pep Guardiola explains why he didn't sign Edinson Cavani

Pep Guardiola is happy with his current striking options.

The 34-year old veteran striker joined Manchester United on a free transfer and has scored seven goals and made two assists so far this season.

It is reported that Guardiola is on the hunt for a new striker this summer but didn’t make any attempt to sign the veteran ahead of their noisy neighbours.

Guardiola reveals that he is a big admirer of the Uruguayan international but his strike force was enough not to pursue him.

“We have Gabriel (Jesus) and we were waiting for Sergio (Aguero) to come back. Ferran (Torres) can play there really well too,” Pep Guardiola said.

“He’s a player I admire a lot. I like the guy commits his whole career in many countries and he’s doing well.”

“They are so strong in all departments,” he added before going into meeting against Man United.

“Defensively, and Bruno Fernandes, the speed up front with (Daniel) James, (Marcus) Rashford, (Anthony) Martial, the experience of Cavani, a player I admire the most for what he’s done with his career.

“It’s Manchester United. It’s a privilege to compete with them, to be in front of them. Sunday is no exception. It’s our target to do what we’ve done lately.”
