Edinson Cavani has been in impressive form for Manchester United this season.

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has paid tribute to team-mate Edinson Cavani, with the teenager's game improving as a result of playing and training alongside the veteran forward. Greenwood says that Cavani "does everything right as a footballer" and compared him to two other United players.

Speaking to the club's official website, Greenwood said: "He's a top striker, you can tell the second he came here.

"The stuff he does, the way he dresses himself, the way he trains, the way he does everything right as a footballer really.

"He reminds me a lot of Juan [Mata] who’s here as well, and Nemanja [Matic] – two great professional players.

"It's always good to have them in your team, as a young lad, to look up to and to take note of."

Greenwood has been particularly impressed with Cavani's movement, adding: "For me, it's his movement really. I've never seen a striker do as many movements.

"He does probably the same movement about six or seven times a game, like the one against Southampton, he does that every day in training.

"He scored two from doing the exact same thing. It's good to see a high-level striker at the club you can take note of."

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently spoke about Greenwood's development this season and revealed that Cavani has been a positive influence on the youngster.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of United's Premier League clash with Sheffield United, Solskjaer said: "I think Mason has taken steps, he has grown, is more mature and he’s been training with Edinson Cavani for half a season now.

"He's learning good habits and whoever doesn't learn good habits from a good professional like him or Bruno [Fernandes], or the players we've brought in, that's a pity.

"I'm very confident that Mason will chip in with good performances and goals and assists."

United legend Rio Ferdinand recently praised Cavani for bringing his 'winning mentality' to Old Trafford.

Speaking on his FIVE YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been given time. He’s got the players in, he’s got the players that he wants at the moment.

I'm sure he [Solskjaer] wants to be more active in the transfer market again but he's got a select group of players that he seems very happy with at the moment, who understand all of the ideas that he's put into them in the training ground and it's coming off in the games now.

"I think Cavani can't be underplayed in what he's adding in terms of a mentality more than anything.

"This guy knows how to win leagues, albeit not in this country but he's committed, he's very, very sure on how he knows how to win things given what he’s done at PSG."
