Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani.

The Daily Mirror suggests the Portuguese tactician is not keen on spending 'megabucks' on trying to entice Cavani away from the Ligue 1 moneybags.

Paris Saint-Germain would demand a fee of around £55million if they were to sell the Uruguayan international in the summer.

The French outfit forked out £55million on Cavani last summer as they looked to splash the cash in hope of becoming serious Champions League title contenders.

However Cavani has become disillusioned with life in the French capital as he has had to pay second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United and Chelsea were expected to go head-to-head in the race to sign Cavani, however Mourinho has now pulled the plug on a possible deal for the 27-year-old.

News of Chelsea's disinterest in signing Cavani will be music to the ears of both Manchester United supporters and Moyes, as the Premier League champions are in need of world-class additions.
