Chelsea throw everything at beating Man City for Cavani

Chelsea are pouring all their energies into beating Manchester City for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.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.

Chelsea also believe Borussia Dortmund's Lewandowski will sign for Bayern Munich after Saturday's Champions League final and Rooney will stay at Manchester United.

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.
