He could return for the Carabao Cup game with the Hammers at Old Trafford on Wednesday but Solskjaer knows he needs a Cavani who is fully fit to get the best out of him this season.
“Edinson hopefully will start training with us after the weekend, maybe Monday, so maybe involved on Wednesday,” said Solskjaer.
“He had a fantastic season last season, the impact he made when he got his fitness, he struggled with niggly injuries early on. We feel that to get the best out of him this season we need to get him 100% fit and not rush him.
“We’ve got a strong squad that will cope with having to let players heal and not risk any further injuries. I see Edinson having a massive impact, he’s that type of personality and player. He can’t wait to play and he’s working really hard to get back on the pitch.”
