Wales coach Ryan Giggs believes Edinson Cavani is the striker Manchester United need.

Cavani made a surprise switch to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day this month after leaving French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Giggs told Webby & O'Neill's YouTube channel: "I faced Cavani in my second game for Wales and he was better that Luis Suarez actually in the game. I didn't think he was that good.

"(But) He was a real handful. He hasn't played for a long time so he might be a little bit rusty.

"But what you're getting; you're getting a centre forward which I think a lot of fans have been crying out for.

"A proper centre forward who can led the line. We have Marcus, 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."
