The Sun says the Champions League and Europa League holders want £50m flop Fernando Torres out in the summer to make way for a big-name replacement. They have been linked with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Robert Lewandowski, Radamel Falcao and Cavani.
Ronaldo is a no-go for a variety of reasons — not least that the Real Madrid superstar and boss Mourinho have fallen out.
The incoming Chelsea boss is also convinced the £80m world-record signing will stay at the Bernabeu for at least another season.
And they have also been told that Atletico Madrid’s Falcao has already agreed a deal elsewhere, with Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain both keen.
So Cavani is the one — but the Uruguayan will not be cheap and he will not be easy.
