Reports: Chelsea Bid For Cavani Accepted

Real Madrid reportedly want Edinson Cavani to replace Gonzalo Higuain if the Argentine striker signs for Arsenal or Juventus.

But if Los Blancos are serious about the Uruguayan poster boy, they will have to outbid English Premier League heavyweights Chelsea.

Overnight reports on Napoli’s official radio station, Radio Marte, suggest that Napoli have agreed to sell Cavani to the Blues for a whopping €58 million.

According to the reports, a "very reliable source" claims Cavani will be heading to Stamford Bridge on a deal with €8.5 million per season.

"We have received news in the office from a very reliable source that Napoli have sealed a deal with Chelsea for Cavani's sale,” the station read on air.

"Rafa Benitez also gave the all-clear, but before making the move official Napoli want to secure the striker who will replace Il Matador.

"Aurelio De Laurentiis' club will pick up around €58 million, a slight discount on the buy-out clause, which is the same situation as Ezequiel Lavezzi to PSG last year. The player will earn €8.5m per season plus image rights."

The reported fee for Cavani is roughly what Chelsea paid Liverpool for Fernando Torres.

The significant difference is that if Cavani arrives in London, he will do so on the back of three 30-goal + seasons, and with his reputation sky high. And not as the dwindling transfer gamble El Nino was after almost two seasons of underperformance at Anfield.

With 104 goals in 138 appearances for Napoli, it is no surprise that Serie A expert Paolo Bandini tweeted: “…if the Cavani to Chelsea story is legit…..stick your money on Chelsea for the title.”
