Etihad Stadium side ready to splash the cash to win the race to sign Uruguayan forward.
Man City are reportedly ready to trigger Napoli striker Edinson Cavani’s £52m release clause as they hope to beat other interested parties to sign the 26 year old Uruguayan according to the Daily Mail.
fanatix tickets – Manchester City vs Chelsea tickets are on sale from £48 for the match on February 24th at the Etihad Stadium.
Etihad Stadium boss Roberto Mancini is ready to re-shuffle his attack and has earmarked a move for the Serie A goal machine, despite being initially put off by the player’s price-tag.
Both PSG and Real Madrid are also taking an interest in the former Palermo man and Man City are hoping to land the in-form striker in the knowledge that their failure to win the race to sign Robin Van Persie will almost certainly cost them their Premier League crown.
City will offset this spending with the sale of Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko, having already offloaded troubled striker Mario Balotelli to AC Milan last month.
Cavani netted 33 goals in each of his first two seasons at the San Paolo and is the current top scorer in Serie A with 18 goals to his name, goals which have helped the Naples based club to mount a genuine title challenge with Walter Mazzarri’s side just five points off top of the table Juventus.
One wonders where such a signing would leave Man City’s Argentine strike pair Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez?
