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

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.
