Edinson Cavani rumored to be on his way to PSG

Radio RMC are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have agreed terms with Napoli forward Edinson Cavani and are prepared to trigger his €65m buyout clause.

Various sources in France are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have agreed terms for the transfer of Edinson Cavani in the summer. However, there has been no agreement with Napoli, and PSG director of football has denied the club has reached a contract with the Uruguayan.

Cavani, who is currently the leading scorer in Serie A with 23 goals, has a €65m buyout clause in his contract. Despite the high cost for the forward, Cavani has been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus -- as well as a few smaller clubs whose fans love to engage in hopeless fantasizing.

Of course, PSG have cash to splash. Cavani was always going to be leaving Serie A: Italian clubs just can't afford them, and even if they could, Aurelio De Laurentiis wouldn't sell to the side Napoli is intent on challenging for the title. And PSG makes sense, with its surplus of ex-Serie A players and, perhaps more importantly, Cavani's ex-teammate, Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Napoli, currently in second place in Serie A, will face a tough Champions League tournament without their prolific goalscorer. Let's just hope they use some of the resulting funds to lock down Marek Hamsik (and perhaps hire him a team of personal bodyguards).
