‘Special One’ eyes £40m Cavani as Chelsea opener

Jose Mourinho would want to make Edinson Cavani his first signing if he returns to Chelsea, according to reports in the British press.

The Daily Star claims Mourinho has also made it clear to officials at the club that Fernando Torres – who was signed for £50 million last January – would also need to be sold as ‘the special one’ looks to avoid another Andrey Shevchenko scenario.

Former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas, who was removed from his post at Stamford Bridge following the 1-0 weekend defeat to West Bromwich Albion, had also been linked with a move for the Napoli hitman during his time at the club.

And, despite the £40 million price tag cited in the Star report, Mourinho would be keen to add the player he sees as ‘the new Didier Drogba’ at the first available opportunity.

Of course, Mourinho has not been appointed as the new Chelsea manager just yet, with Roberto Di Matteo currently in charge at the King’s Road on a temporary basis.

Other names are in the frame to take the job too, with Barcelona chief Jose Mourinho and unemployed Rafa Benitez towards the top of the bookmakers’ short-list over who could be the next Chelsea boss.

Mourinho would certainly be the fans’ choice however, and if he could lure Cavani to the club on arrival, it would be a phenomenal return for the Chelsea icon.
