Chelsea, Man City must break transfer record for Cavani

Chelsea and Manchester City must break their transfer record to land Napoli star Edinson Cavani.

Chelsea and Manchester City must break their transfer record to land Napoli star Edinson Cavani.

The Daily Star says Chelsea and Manchester City will have to shell out a staggering £54m if they want to sign Cavani.

The monster fee is £4m more than Roman Abramovich paid for Fernando Torres and £16m more than City signed star hitman Sergio Aguero for.

It's likely that the huge asking price laid down by Napoli will prove too high for a cash deal - but a swap move with a player being used as a make-weight could still happen.
