Bernabeu side ready to splash the cash in pursuit of Napoli forward.
Real Madrid are reportedly ready to launch a mammoth bid to land Napoli goal machine Edinson Cavani according to Spanish source El Mundo Deportivo.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona tickets are on sale for this massive La Liga clash at the Bernabeu on March 3rd.
The former Palermo man hasn’t stopped scoring since his move to Italy in January 2007. The powerful forward managed 30 goals in his final two seasons with the Sicilian side before completing a move to the San Paolo where his career has really taken off.
Cavani managed 33 goals in each of his first two campaigns with Walter Mazzarri’s side and has managed an astonishing 27 goals in 26 matches thus far this term, helping Napoli to mount a genuine Serie A title challenge.
Real Madrid have shared the striking duties between Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain over recent seasons with neither really retaining a consistent level of form, luckily Jose Mourinho’s side have been able to count on a wealth of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo so haven’t been unduly affected.
Now however the Spanish giants want to place Cavani as the spearhead of their attack and are seemingly willing to break the bank to get a deal done.
