Chelsea To Splash £80m On PSG Duo?

English media report that Chelsea targets Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi are both keen to join Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Jose Mourinho has set his sights on new attacking options and the Blues are reportedly ready to pay £80m (R 1.4 billion) for the Paris Saint-Germain duo.

Cavani is understood to be unhappy with playing second fiddle to PSG’s main man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while Lavezzi is also keen to join Mourinho.

The Chelsea manager had stated in the aftermath of his side’s 3-1 Champions League quarter-final defeat in Paris, that both Cavani and Lavezzi were the type of ‘real striker’ who he would like to add to his squad.

However, Mourinho could be concerned by the recent performances of Cavani, who reportedly has a massive £55m (R 966 million) price-tag. The Uruguay forward struggles to fill the gap left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and failed to prevent PSG’s last two 1-0 defeats.

Cavani only scored one goal in his last eight games for PSG and his coach, Laurent Blanc, believes the striker is sub-consciously holding back to avoid an injury before the World Cup.

Blanc told Canal Plus: "Cavani had a serious injury and he wants to play in the World Cup. He's afraid of a recurrence. Unconsciously, it's necessary that he relaxes."
