Cavani close to Chelsea
AS report that the Napoli forward, who has been linked with Madrid, the Londoners and Manchester City heading into this summer, has already reportedly green-lit a contract offer from Jose Mourinho’s new team.
Paying out €9m a year in salary including bonuses to the 26-year-old, it is believed that the Blues are in talks with Napoli over a transfer fee.
The Premier League side have reportedly had a €50m offer turned down, but it is understood that the Partenopei would be willing to negotiate at €60m, just underneath Cavani’s buyout clause of €63m, and that they would accept a flexible payment method of instalments.
