Chelsea chief Makelele in PSG talks for Cavani and Ruiz-Atil

Chelsea have opened talks with PSG for Edinson Cavani.

Goal says Chelsea technical mentor Claude Makelele went to France to speak with the Ligue 1 leaders about youngster Kays Ruiz-Atil and they discussed a move for Cavani too.

The Uruguayan has found himself down the pecking order in the French capital thanks to a series of injuries and the arrival of Mauro Icardi last summer.

Chelsea have held initial talks with PSG, but are yet to submit an official offer.

Cavani has told PSG that he wants to leave the club this month after Atletico Madrid made an approach to sign him, but it remains to be seen if he could be tempted to join Chelsea instead.

Cavani has just six months remaining on his PSG contract, meaning they risk losing him for nothing if they fail to sell this month.
