Report: Chelsea close in on Cavani capture

25 June 2013 10:06

Chelsea are set to pay €58 million for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, according to the Italian club's official radio station.

Radio Marte have claimed the Uruguayan striker will earn "8.5 million euros per season plus image rights" when he completes a proposed move to London.

While Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in Cavani, the radio station believe Chelsea have secured the 26-year-old pending Napoli head coach Rafael Benitez finding a replacement.

"We have received news in the office from a very reliable source that Napoli have sealed a deal with Chelsea for Cavani's sale," a Radio Marte statement read.

"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 euros, a slight discount on the buy-out clause, which is the same situation as Ezequiel Lavezzi to PSG last year.

"The player will earn 8.5 million euros per season plus image rights."

Cavani has scored 104 goals in 138 games in his time with Napoli and is considered one of the best strikers in the world, alongside Radamel Falcao, who joined Monaco from Atletico Madrid in May.

Aurelio De Laurentiis, Napoli's owner, recently claimed he would "smack" the Uruguayan if his future was not decided before July 20.
