PSG Wine & Dine Cavani's Agent

Edinson Cavani’s agent is causing serious damage to the environment, jetting around Europe trailing a gaseous release of transfer fumes in his wake.

Last week he was reportedly in London to discuss the possibility of Cavani signing for Chelsea.

He certainly has ubiquitous ‘showdown talks’ scheduled in Naples, as he seeks to ensure his bread is buttered by a big money transfer.

And now it seems he has been wining and dining with PSG’s decision makers in Paris, after the French champions reportedly made Cavani their primary transfer target.

According to Le Parisien, in-demand Uruguay star Cavani’s agent, Pierpaolo Triulzi, was in Paris on Monday to hear PSG’s offer for his client.

The paper claims that PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, discussed signing Cavani with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis weeks ago, even before Laurent Blanc was appointed as Carlo Ancelotti’s successor at the Parc des Princes.

If PSG are serious about poaching 26-year-old El Matador from the Partenopei, they will have to meet his estimated €63 million buyout clause.

If that seems to be an excessive amount, it is probably best to remember that PSG are essentially bankrolled by the oil rich Gulf state of Qatar.

And to them, combining the Uruguayan’s propensity to score 30 goals per season with their current 30-goal hit-man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, probably seems an expense worth stumping up for.

Cavani added to his lustre by scoring a handful of expertly taken goals for Uruguay at the Confederations Cup, and it will be interesting to see which one of his high-profile suitors finally signs him, and how much they spend to do so.
