Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants forward Edinson Cavani to stay at the club for another season.
The Uruguay international joined United on a one-year deal in October, with the option of an additional 12 months.
However, the 34-year-old is undecided about whether to remain in England after a difficult first year.
He initially had to spend time in isolation and then got banned for three matches by the Football Association for a social media post.
The post was deemed offensive even if it was accepted Cavani had not been intentionally racist.
Argentina’s Boca Juniors are known to be keen to bring Cavani back to South America.
But after he scored twice and secured three assists in United’s 6-2 Europa League semi-final first-leg victory over Roma, Solskjaer says he is trying hard to keep Cavani at the club. Manchester United vs Roma HIGHLIGHTS [6-2]
“He knows my feelings,” said Solskjaer. “He knows I would love to have him here.
“Edinson is more than just a goal poacher. He is excellent at running the channels, being the focal point and bringing others into play.
“He is making up for lost time and I am delighted with him. Hopefully we will see him here for another year. I am doing my best. I promised him Old Trafford is a different place with fans.
“He must try to get that feeling, to be on our side. Manchester is a fantastic place to live. Of course nights like this, hopefully, we can get to the final and hopefully he can see himself being here for another year.”
