And finally, according to TalkSport, Edinson Cavani looks likely to leave PSG this summer, with teammate Zlatan Ibrahimović also on the cusp of joining Manchester United. The former Napoli forward previously rejected the idea of moving to England due to language barriers and issues with not being able to cope with the England style. Instead, he was making noise to join Contes’ former club team Juventus, as he enjoyed a successful spell in Italy before his big £55.6million move to Paris in June 2013. However, due to the Television deals in England, the prospect of moving to England has largely intrigued the Uruguayan with a larger pay package being mentioned as part of the move. Arsenal previously had been interested in taking the Uruguay striker, but the stories have gone cold as reported by French outlet Le 10 Sport, who claim Chelsea are in hot pursuit alongside Italian champions Juventus. The 29 year old scored 19 goals last season in 32 appearances, 24 of those being starts. Considering he was played as a left forward to compliment Ibrahimović in the centre role, the forward had an impressive season.

Unfortunately for Cavani, PSG have already began looking for his Swedish teammates’ replacement, and so a move to another club can guarantee striker a preferred starting role. He may certainly be the striker Chelsea are looking for, as his big name and price will show rivals that Chelsea mean business this season. He is currently playing at the Copa America, where he can really sell himself and get his big transfer into West London.
