Edinson Cavani has vowed to help lead Manchester United back to the Premier League title.
United, who have won the title a record 20 times, were last crowned champions in 2013, in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge.
Since then, United's highest finish in the Premier League is second place, under Jose Mourinho, in the 2017-18 campaign.
But Cavani, who joined as a free agent on deadline day, is convinced United can be champions again and said the title must be their aim this season.
“I think any player who is competitive by nature always wants to be able to win silverware,” said Cavani.
“You always work hard so you can give the best account of yourself, and based on performing at your best, you can get the right results.
“Then, when you’ve picked up the right results, you can go on to win trophies and achieve big things.
“I’ve just joined one of the biggest clubs in the world and I think that one of the first objectives it has, as a club, is to win and be champions.
“I believe that you can’t help but think that a club like Manchester United can aspire to win the title.
“Starting with the Premier League, and then moving on to other trophies.
“That’s what I would like to achieve with this club, win trophies, win titles, and then to be able to make the same impression here that I’ve always tried to make with every club I’ve played at.”
Cavani has been training alone since joining United, with the 33-year-old needing to quarantine for two weeks following his arrival in the UK from Paris.
With Cavani missing Saturday's trip to Newcastle, his first action for United could be against former club Paris St Germain, a week today, in the Champions League.
“I was thinking it was just fate and how things can turn out,” Cavani told United's official website.

“It’s simply incredible, things always happen for a reason, and sometimes in the most unbelievable ways.
“So now it’s my turn to experience one of those kind of moments that you could never imagine happening, and when you look back, they really do.
“But it will be a great feeling and a nice experience and it’s something that I’m very pleased about.
“I’m probably just missing that contact with my team-mates, and getting up to speed on the training ground and the intensity of a game itself.
“But, from the moment I start training with my team-mates, I can get up to speed in as short a period as possible and be competing straight away and giving my best for the group.”
