cavani.jpgHere at the Football Transfer Tavern we are surprised by the news in the Daily Telegraph that claims Manchester City City are ready to give up in their quest to land Radamel Falcao.

The club are of course one striker short after the departure of Mario Balotelli to AC Milan in the January transfer window and given that the future of Edin Dzeko is uncertain, not to mention Carlos Tevez is well Carlos Tevez, Roberto Mancini wants a big name in the summer.

The club are painfully aware that Robin van Persie has made all the difference for Manchester United this season and had Sir Alex Ferguson not splashed out on the Dutchman, things could have been very different in deciding where the title would end up.

It has now been claimed that the club are willing to accept defeat in their move for Colombian international Falcao, with safe money on the striker moving to either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the summer and are willing to turn their attention to Napoli striker Edinson Cavani instead. The Uruguayan has been nothing short of scintillating this season for the Neapolitans and is certainly a hot property in world football and City are willing to meet the £52 million buy out clause in his contract not to mention a rather healthy package in terms of wages in order to land their man.

It seems City have chosen Cavani. Will Cavani choose City? Rate this rumour below.

    He’ll want to sign for a BIG club, so I’m afraid “Citeh” will miss out.

      Lol you’ve got it the wrong way around chump, City won’t want this over rated Cavani, hes’s only as good as the players around him make him.

      We have better than Cavani, Manchester City won’t give up on Falcao.

      Yeah must be a typical armchair Rag with that comment. Small club? 3 trophies in 3 years, zero debt, great canvases and world class facilities. Yeah sounds like a small club.

      City were bigger then most clubs when we were in the third tier and had F all money. Now we are champions (still) have massive investment in the team, club and facilities, better chance then most of champs league footy year in year out, better chance then most of silverware year in year out etc etc etc all this just make us a BIGGER club.

    Rebecca, all you’re doing is spouting rubbish that other websites have already spouted, CLW12 are just one of a long line of idiots, dumb enough to fall for your rubbish.
