Reports in the Spanish Press claim that Edinson Cavani is on the verge of agreeing a transfer to Premier League side Chelsea.
AS report that the Napoli forward, who has been linked with Real 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 the Partenopei over a transfer fee.
The English side have reportedly had a €50m offer turned down, but it is understood that the San Paolo team 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.
