Chelsea FC and Man City told Edinson Cavani will cost them €70M


Chelsea and Manchester City have been told they will have to pay €70MILLION if they are to sign Napoli striker Edinson Cavani this summer.

The forward recently cast doubt on his future at the San Paolo by as good as admitting that failure to qualify for next season's Champions League could lead to him seeking a summer transfer.

As well as Chelsea and Man City, Italian champions Juventus, and French giants Paris Saint-Germain are both thought to be keen on signing the Uruguay international.

But Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has insisted he will only let Cavani leave the club this summer should his valuation is met.

"People claim that I intend to sell Cavani," he told Tuttosport.

And he added: "Of course, if they are offering €70m in cash."

Speaking earlier this month, Cavani refused to rule out a move away from Napoli this summer, telling Goal.com: "I do not know anything about what happened or what is happening.

"I am only thinking about these matches with the national team, which will close the season. After this, I want to go on holiday, which will be very important."
