Former Juventus and Sampdoria coach Ciro Ferrara has urged Napoli star Edinson Cavani to join Chelsea over PSG, as rumours emerge that the French club are leading the race to secure his signature.
Chelsea have been trying to negotiate a price for Cavani in a protracted transfer saga that has lasted the duration of the summer so far, but it seems as if PSG are in position a to sign the sought-after Uruguayan striker after recent reports that they are prepared to bid £54m to secure the transfer.
However, Ferrera believes that Cavani would be making a big mistake if he was to choose the French club over Chelsea or Real Madrid, who are also reportedly interested.
"With all the respect for my friend [Laurent] Blanc [the new PSG coach], PSG don't have the same attraction as Real Madrid and Chelsea," Ferrara said to ESPN. "If I were to choose, I would certainly not go to Paris."
Cavani is amongst the world’s best strikers and has an impressive record at Napoli, where he has managed to score 78 goals in 104 appearances.
