Edison Cavani has said the pair of Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood will flourish at Man United should the two improve on their work rate.

Both Greenwood and Martial have been mainstay squad players for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Norwegian continues his rebuilding bid at the club.

After the departure of Romelu Lukaku, Martial was handed United's no.9 shirt, with Solskjaer charging him with the responsibility of leading the club's attack line.

The arrival of Cavani is expected to complicate that, with reports suggesting the Uruguayan could usurp Martial of the spot.

Cavani joined the Red Devils on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain after an illustrious career with the French side that saw him net a record 200 goals in 301 appearances.

And when asked if he had any advice for his new club's forwards, the veteran striker urged Martial and co to step up their commitment in training to improve their performances on the pitch.

"Look, I don’t think that there’s any better advice than simply working hard on a football pitch or in a training session," he told Man United official website.

The 33-year-old Uruguayan further noted he hopes to use his experience to help United reach new levels.

"I’m coming here to do my very best, as I told you, and I’m here to offer a little bit of my experience to the squad, to the manager, and I’m ready and willing to do the very best I can," Cavani added.

The Manchester club has struggled for form since the start of the new season, with the side registering just a single win since the campaign kicked off.

Their last match before the international break ended in a 6-1 defeat in the hands of Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

They will be hoping to get their campaign back on track on Saturday, October 17, when they take on Newcastle in their next league match.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Sergio Romero could settle for a move to join an undisclosed club in the Major League Soccer in the United States.

The Argentine international failed to seal a deadline day move to the Merseyside to join Everton following a disagreement with the fee.

The American transfer window is set to close on October 29, and the goalkeeper who is currently on international duty will be hoping to get a deal with an undisclosed club off the line.
