Chelsea offered Fernando Torres + €50m for Edinson Cavani

Napoli have rejected another offer from Chelsea for Edinson Cavani – this time with Fernando Torres included in the deal.

According to the Independent, the Stamford Bridge club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, sanctioned a bid worth €50million and Torres, but the Serie A side are not interested.

The report claims new manager Jose Mourinho is keen to add to his tacking options at Chelsea and Cavani is top of his wanted list.

However, Mourinho knows he must make space in the Blues’ wage bill if he is to sign the 26-year-old and Torres could be the high earner to make way.

It goes on to say Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is determined to stand firm on his assertion that anybody can sign Cavani if they meet his €63million release clause and he will accept no less.

Meanwhile, it claims Torres accepts that Mourinho’s arrival could mean the end of his time at Chelsea and he will assess any proposal to move on.

The Spain international has struggled to reproduce his best form since his £50million switch from Liverpool in 2011 and it could be that Chelsea have run out of patience with him.
