Is Cavani back on the Market?

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.
11/07/2013 08:24:00
We could move in for Jovetic
11/07/2013 08:31:00
The Cavani ship sailed days back.
11/07/2013 08:33:00
We could just go on with what we have if everyone is overpricing their strikers
11/07/2013 08:38:00
@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.
11/07/2013 08:39:00
Cavani is long gone. Lets move on.
11/07/2013 08:56:00
I think this is done and dusted. It will be announced once Napoli gets Damiao

Cavani to psg is definitely gonna happen I think we should just concentrate on getting rooney and by the way why isn't anyone talking about fred?
11/07/2013 09:18:00
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#
11/07/2013 09:42:00
@Tugay08. I'll presume you do not rate what we have? Then would be nice if you stated that with reasons and not belittle someone else's reasoning thereby causing insults back and forth.
11/07/2013 10:04:00
@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?

Wow....Someone doesnt rate our striker at all!!! Some fans wld replace the whole team if they could!! Deluded!!
11/07/2013 10:26:00
@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
