According to reports in the French media, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool may miss out on the signing of Edinson Cavani. French media house Le 10 Sport are reporting Atletico Madrid are preparing a big money offer to sign the Uruguayan striker. Cavani has been linked to a move to the premier league in the last three transfer windows.
It was initially reported that Chelsea would make a move for the South American once the transfer window opens but if Le 10 Sport are correct, Chelsea might be missing out on him. However, should he go to Atletico, that too will have a big effect on Chelsea’s transfer dealings in the summer. Just yesterday, it was reported that Chelsea are ready to table a big money offer for Atletico Madrid’s Antonie Griezmann.
Should Edinson Cavani move to Atletic, it would mean Chelsea will have a good chance fo signing Griezmann. Griezmann has in 32 games so far this season scored a total not 22 goals for Atletic. This is an incredible feat for a player who only just last season was playing as a central midfielder for his former club Real Sociedad.
With Atletico going for Cavani ( if the report is true thats ), it seems the Spanish club has started making arrangement for life without their prolific French attacker.
