Cavani - Napoli have wrapped up a €58 million deal for star .

Napoli based radio station, Radio Marte, made the announcement late on Monday evening.

“We have received news from a very reliable source that Napoli have sealed a deal with Chelsea for Cavani’s sale.

“Rafa Benitez has given the all-clear, but before making the move official Napoli want to secure the striker who will replace Il Matador.

“Aurelio De Laurentiis’ club will pick up around €58 million, slightly less than the the buy-out clause.

“The player will earn €8.5 million per season plus image rights.”

With this news it would appear as though Chelsea have beaten out Manchester City, PSG and Real Madrid in the race to sign the highly rated Uruguayan.

Cavani was top scorer in Serie A last season, scoring 29 goals in 34 appearances for the Partenopei.

Adriano Boin

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed.
