MOST COMMENTED

As the Edinson Cavani saga drags on, the Guardian reports that Paris Saint-Germain has emerged as the clear favorite to land the coveted striker, with the French champion lodging a $76 million bid to beat the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea to the Uruguayan’s signature. According to the report, PSG is desperate to be considered a European powerhouse, and has seen its pride damaged by Carlo Ancelotti’s departure and its frustrating pursuit for a successor that culminated in fifth or sixth choice Laurent Blanc signing a two-year deal at the Parc des Princes.

However, Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis is believed to be holding out for $82 million, the full asking price in Cavani’s contract. De Laurentiis indicated on Tuesday that no formal offer had been received but reports in France suggest Cavani's agent, Pierpaolo Triulzi, was in Paris on Monday and met PSG's technical director, Leonardo.

Of course, further complicating matters is Cavani’s own public assertion that he would prefer to go to Real Madrid.
