Is Edinson Cavani headed to Chelsea? According to Napoli radio station Radio Marte, the two clubs have reached an agreement over the Uruguayan’s $76 million transfer fee: "We have received news in the office from a very reliable source that Napoli have sealed a deal with Chelsea for Cavani's sale,” the report said. "(Manager) Rafa Benitez also gave the all-clear, but before making the move official Napoli want to secure the striker who will replace Il Matador.”
Despite the report, Cavani, the top scorer in Serie A last season with 26 goals, has said he needs to speak with Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis before he decides whether he will move. De Laurentiis controversially said that everything would be resolved by July 20, or he would “smack” the striker.
