Chelsea Enter £30m Cavani Talks After Agents Fly In

Napoli’s Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani may be Chelsea bound, after reporting that a meeting between both his agents and Chelsea FC took place on Friday.


Writer: Lewis Taylor:

Today the Sun newspaper is claiming that Napoli’s Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani may be Chelsea bound, after reporting that a meeting between both his agents and Chelsea officials took place on Friday.

Roman Abramovich is keen to add in the summer and Cavani is seen as the goal-machine that Chelsea crave. The report suggests a bid of £30 million could tempt Napoli in selling one of their prized assets.

Should this move go through it could spell the end to Fernando Torres’ future at Stamford Bridge, with the Spaniard struggling to settle since his big-money move from Liverpool.

In my opinion, I believe Chelsea need at least 5 players this summer. A right back in and Bosingwa out. Midfielders Mikel, Malouda, Meireles and maybe Lampard and Essien should move on too.

I’d like to see a creative midfielder like Kaka come in along with an old fashioned winger like Robben. I feel we could do with a defensive midfield player as well, and Newcastle’s Tiote would be my choice after impressing with his tough-tackling performances for the Geordies.

Personally, i would like to see Torres stay and with the added creativity in midfield, we could get the best out of Fernando. Mata has been Chelsea’s stand out player this season and is the only real creative player we can rely on. I’d also give youth a chance, with Josh McEachran and Lukaku given more first team action next season.

So my 2012-13 starting 11 would be:

Chelsea 2012/13

    Great to hear so much feedback from everyone, it seems as though where all sharing the same thoughts about the need for new transfers at Chelsea fc. And the need for more attack minded players backs up my thoughts to. In regards the Michael Essien argument I think he’s absolutely brilliant, a legend at Chelsea, remember that goal against Barcelona wow ‘take a bow son’. But my argument was that two knee injuries is hard to come back from. He’s done amazingly well to get back into the mix but for me I feel that he doesn’t look like Essien anymore he needs another season to recover, he’s still got Hugh potential. But I feel Tiote or someone like that could benefit the team in the short term and the future.

    Any thoughts or comments welcome

    I’m so suprised nobody mentioned “stingy & selfish” Sturidge.He also contributed to Torres goal drought ‘cos he dosen’t use to give him pass,as he did against L’Pool & Arsenal.
    Talking about the summer signing, i think & strongly believ Torres & Cavani can be a perfect pair/match up front.
    A winger, like Robben, a creative midfielder like Hamsik & Hazard, & also not forgeting Tiote as a long term replacement 4 Essien, a good right back & a good keeper, preferably Stoke’s Begovic.
    UP BLUES (4rm Nigeria)

    Sorry, i make a suggestion that torres should go on loan so that cavany can come in, if rely on torres that wen those player to buy come in he will change is a lie and again if try to sell drogba out forget chelsea may have problem bcs that is my/chelsea best striker and is playing is unpredictable.thanx

    I suggest that the team manager talk to the team one and Storage learn to make some passes to his team mit that we can have a win.
    nothing wrong with the teasm for now but all we need is passesd and their could be a godd chance fpor winning. Braver to chesae keep on the good work. you can make it.

    If any manager joins Chelsea and not off loading the old players will join the axe as other axed managers. Roman please clear the old players before appointing any manager.They are the same players who caused the dismisal of Grant, Scolary, Ancelot AVB etc.
