MOST COMMENTED

Chelsea has apparently had bids of $68 and $74 million for Edinson Cavani rejected, according to L’Equipe, with Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis holding out for the full $82 million as stated in Cavani’s release clause. The French daily claims PSG is willing to pay full price in addition to offering the player $455,000 per week, compared to Chelsea’s offer of $334,000. It’s clear that Napoli wants to sell and is willing to do business with anyone prepared to meet the buyout clause; what’s unclear, however, is what the player wants.

Meanwhile, if other reports are to be believed, Chelsea might be willing to pass on Cavani if an agreement can be reached for Sporting Lisbon prodigy Bruma, who is currently playing for Portugal at the U-20 World Cup in Turkey. Sporting officials have dubbed the 18-year-old the “new Cristiano Ronaldo”. The Express also claims that Blues coach Jose Mourinho has placed AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy on his short list of transfer targets this summer. The Italy international would cost close to $45.5 million, while AS Roma defensive midfielder Daniele De Rossi, another target of Mourinho’s, would cost $15 million.
