Is Cavani back on the Market?

Has the resignation of Paris St Germain`s Leornado opened the door for a renewed Chelsea bid ofr Edinson Cavani?

The reason we ask is that quotes are forthcoming from PSG, quotes which state,

'We regret his choice but respect his decision and wish him all the best for his future career choice.'

Probing further, we find that BBC sport are suggesting that Leornardo`s main responsibility at PSG was dealing with the transfers and that his 'shock` impending resignation has put a big dent in the chase for Cavani.

Furthermore, it is now being suggested that Chelsea may be biding their time and trying to force Napoli`s hand by making an eleventh hour bid, of £40 million, on the eve of his contract release clause expiring on August 10th.

Us mere plebs can but wait and see!

Lol!! It's clutching at straws situation. Not sure why they didn't announce. But it should go through, as Napoli have already started spending the money. They got a GK and Callejon from Madrid. Plus they are bidding for Damiao. .........

Cavani is already a psg player IMO, leonardo's last buisness for the club was signing cavani...our striker options have been further depleted to just rooney and higuain.

@bluekid Mancity are almost done with signing Jovetic,unless we move now. Cavani? I never liked the idea of spending over £35m for him. I think we should do all the possibles and bring in Jovetic or Suarez.

Funny how some "mere plebs" still think we can still get Cavani let alone a certain Luis Suarez! Wtf? Does it mean all the info published on this site daily are seeds planted on fallow land?!? I'll be damned! Folks should disregard PSG's feigning of ignorance and take that with a pinch of salt; Cavani will be a PSG player before August 31! After all, wasn't Leonardo's resignation impending... expected, soon after he was handed that 6-month suspension? lol

The only way Cavani wont go to PSG is if Chelsea come up with an outrageous fee which I dont think the hierachy is ready to sanction but you never know with transfers. Moreover I think Ba is getting far more stick than he deserves.

Rip the red, I dont know why you sound so confident that Napoli will get Damiao but from the comments of Intercional president they are not willing to sell him on the cheap, methinks they are taking their till after the world cup where his price will soar. I dont think Napoli can get him.

@Desmonddaonis, would you listen to yourself for a minute "let's go with what we have", I think science should come up with a plan to implant micro-chips in the heads of every human, so when someone says something stupid, it explodes. Desmond, you just lost one micro-chip #in Dr. Sheldon Cooper's voice#

@Dannism: I think Damiao will be after Fred in the pecking order so his price will not soar. Napolo has bidded 18M for him and no other top elite European club wants him, Internacional is just holding for a few million more so it is just a matter of time

lol @Tugay08 @micro-chips and stuff. You're wicked man, ease off will ya? #in AVButthead's voice# @Dannismology ;) [Leandro?] Damiao is injury-prone and has stagnated in his development over the last 1 and half years. Same reason erstwhile suitors like Spuds have let his boat sail unperturbed this summer. Benitez or De Laurentis are only but gambling...and to suggest or hope "his price will soar" after the World Cup I'm afraid is moot point, if not delusional, seeing as he'll never become Brazil's nor Big Phil's preferred No.9!!! For whatever it is worth btw, isn't he third in the pecking order behind Fred and Jo?

@Nelyvanile, I'm cool with Desmonddadonis, he knows that I'm sure. Right, among our strikers, I rate Ba and Lukaku only, but the thing is, they are not on the level of Man U and City strikers, the supposed teams we are directly challenging for the title, unless we are comfortable with fighting for third spot like we did last season, then we go with them. Many of you here think Mourinho to be a Magician (Gandalf the white) that his coming would make us automatic champions, well let me put it this way, if we fail to plan, we plan to fail, if we fail to correct/fortify our problems from last season, then 3rd place and the Europa league is as good as it gets for us, and the striking role was one of our biggest problems from last season, or do you think Lukaku, Ba and Torres can hold their own in Europe (CL)? We need a top class striker, let's not be blinded by sentiments cos our only chance now of a top finisher/striker is Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez. KTBFFH

@Tugay. Let us start by identifying exactly what our problem was last season? A striker,Midfielder,Defender or a certain balance that was missing in transition play? RDM spoke so much about the balance in the team,Rafa was quick to identify the team lacked a certain balance between attacking and defending. So what exactly was our problem? Well I believe we didn't have the right balance and the midfield needed an addition or a certain tweak. We were obviously short in numbers in attack and Torres didn't guarantee us goals,so we went for the 2nd/3rd best striker in the league based on goals scored as at January. Arrival of Ba looked to guarantee us goals but he seemed to struggle to find his feet as well,we obviously didn't play to his strength and he looked too eager to prove a point sometimes. Don't get me wrong,I'm not saying an addition of a Striker is not needed but that's not the main issue. If we get a striker,all well and good,but if we don't,ill gladly stick with what we have...Torres,Ba,and Lukaku got pretty decent amount of goals last season,and if we have to stick to them,we have to balance the team to play to their strengths and improve our transitional play. Like I always say,a world class player is as good as his team mates,team work brings out the class in a player.

i dont think we need a strike at all...torres scored 20 goals last season even though he was in bad form...lukaku scored 16 goals with west brom midfield ba can score in double figure...we have so many am like mata hazz lamps oscar and now kdb schrulle who can score goals and help us win the game...the best thing about chelsea that we are not a one man team unlike other team who depends on one player for their win...our defenders scores and i would happy having a team contributing in goals rather than depending on one striker for the whole season..

Please we need a striker, even if Tugay might have insulted some friends,for the sake of peace I am apologising on his behalf just for us to have a healthy discussions but I stick with his argument on this,we need a sharp striker,lukaku can be good in the league but let's be honest will U trust him on big continental match if Torres is doing his usual invisible when he can't breeze past a Dm not to talk of 2 CD,I've always use the word 'be careful what U wish' in this forum,do U think we can afford to have a bad European night next season again,pls for me hell no,when a striker is non existing as Torres seems to do often,then the whole team is in trouble,and don't expect our midfield to lead us to at least semi in champions league with invisible striker,if it is only for league,I don't mind only Torres and BA self,lukaku is an upgrade but for the big stage,we need a quality CF

Suarez is the best and better option we should go all out for, but our hatred will not allow us do what is right and get him,yes some have rightly say no more scousers cos the players we got from them flopped,but I will rightly say it is our boards fault for getting a washed up scouser,tell me a pool player we have bought at his peak or b4 he peaks,we bought Torres when he was on down spiral in football,of course I don't need to tell U his injury history and him loosing pace b4 and after world cup,how many goals did Torres score the half season we bought him,he wasn't even playing well,and I remember Gerrard offering him penalty against Fulham to boost his confidence coz he was not scoring,pls enough of Liverpool bashing we shot ourselves on the feet simple,and we bought finished benayoun to come supply Torres,I remember arguing with my friend that it is a bad buy and he doubted and which to this day he have eaten his words,mirra was ok for us but he is way past his prime at Porto and Liverpool don't need him then as a result of crowded midfield,and bought him as a last ditch attempt for midfield coz of modric failed bid,we are the one shooting ourselves simple,let's get Suarez now at his peak and see what he does,he is the best striker in premier league,better then Van Persie that benched Rooney,yes better U heard me right,he struck 30 for pool even with his 10 match ban for Evra and ban he started serving after Ivan bite,with other suspensions,he is way Under rated. We have good business link with pool seeing we have bought b4 from them and we sold sturridge who is gold to them now without hurdles, we have to exercise that options coz it is not an aggressive buy coz Suarez wants out and not us unsettling him like Torres case, Let's go all out and get him please,or else our dream of silver wear will be a fairytale. Stop hating him,he have apologised and accepted mistake,even Iva did not crucify him,if not for anything for the sake of the Team,we need striker and strikers are dried in the market,forget the media,expect Jose to take pressure of him in media,he is the master of that,takes sticks for his players,stop the media issue coz we will always make front page with or without him and Jose handle them and if we are to make front page,expect Jose face to be there every morning which even promotes his image.

If Cavani has any ambition he will choose Chelsea over PSG. The Premier League is the world’s best league, Mourinho is the world’s best manager, and Chelsea is looking for a first choice striker. But I fear that like many other South American footballers he will put money above career. Think of Falcao, Hulk, and Willian. They will be forgotten where they are playing now. And PSG may win their league, but the world won’t be watching. By contrast, if Cavani joined Chelsea the whole Premier League would buzz with excitement, he would set the world’s biggest stage alight. This summer, at age 26 he is about to make or break his career, let’s hope he makes a wiser choice than the others.

why do people keep saying we need world class strikers if we want to compete in Europe? I seem to remember man city had 4 world class strikers last season and they had a worse champions league campaign than us, Its times like these when we cant depend on getting a so called world class striker that the Lukaku's and the Ba's step up in europe and show they can be world class
