If you had to put an explanation on Manchester City's failure to regain the Premier League title, it would have to be the lack of goals scored by the Citizens.

Pessimists may believe that things do not look like improving next year, with City recently selling Argentina striker Carlos Tevez, who netted 17 goals in all competitions last term.

However, in light of the recent speculation surrounding Napoli star Edinson Cavani potentially joining Manchester City, let's take a look at whether the striker would benefit Manuel Pellegrini's side.

Cavani was born in Uruguay's second largest city, Salto. Like many other Uruguayans, he left South America at an early age to join Palermo in Serie A. Since then, he has scored 141 goals in 255 games for Palermo and, more recently, Napoli combined.

As well as excelling in the league, Cavani has been very impressive in Europe, scoring 19 times in 25 games, including three against City.

There's no doubt that he would be an excellent signing. However, with many other big clubs interested in signing him this summer, Manchester City face a race against time to land the prolific striker.
