Given the fact that both of Radamel Falcao and Robert Lewandowski are now seemingly off the market this summer, it comes as no shock to us in the Football Transfer Tavern to see teams pushing hard to land Napoli’s Edinson Cavani and now Chelsea are the latest to up their offer according to the Shed Ender.
The club are set to offer not only money for the forward but also Fernando Torres who has rediscovered his form at the club this season. This move is of course made all the more intriguing by the fact that new Napoli manager is none other than Rafael Benitez – the man credited with getting the best out of the Spanish forward.
It had been thought that Benitez wanted to keep Cavani at the club and hopefully use him to push for titles yet now it seems that such a tempting offer – which of course would include a large sum of cash – could be too good to turn down.
Manchester City are also eyeing a player plus cash deal with Napoli and it had been claimed that Edin Dzeko would be the one on his way – yet we think Benitez would prefer to link up with former star man Torres for a third time in his managerial career.
