Published 1 Comments

The Daily Star are reporting that Jose Mourinho and Chelsea are to launch a massive bid for PSG and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani.

This move comes after Chelsea re-signed Didier Drogba on a free transfer and signed La Liga star Diego Costa for £32 million from La Liga winners Atletico Madrid.

It would seem that Mourinho is still looking for another striker despite stating that Fernando Torres will not leave Stamford Bridge this summer and that his squad is complete.

It comes after the Blues sold out of favour striker Romelu Lukaku to Everton for £28 million.

Cavani made 30 appearances for PSG in the French League starting 25 games and scoring 16 goals.

Rumours started that Cavani was going to move away from the French capital as he was left out of PSG's launch of their third kit, being replaced on the poster by Yohan Cabaye. This is in comparison with the poster of their new home kit on which Cavani features.

Cavani was said to be unhappy at the French League champions as coach Laurent Blanc was playing him out of position on the wing to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Cavani has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks however he has now ruled a move to the red side of Manchester out saying he wants to stay in France.
