Chelsea boss Mourinho wants Cavani AND Hulk in £90M cash splash

New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants Napoli star Edinson Cavani AND Zenit St Petersburg ace Hulk. The Daily Express says Mourinho has Roman Abramovich's backing to bid for Uruguay hit man Cavani, who is at Napoli, and Brazilian front man Hulk, who moved to Zenit St Petersburg last summer.

To have any chance of success Chelsea will have to pay a British record £53m for Cavani and around £40m for Hulk.

But the payback for the bold double swoop is to guarantee a new club for £50m Fernando Torres, who has failed to reproduce his devastating Liverpool form since his move to London.
