Uruguayan on his way to the Bernabeu?
Spanish source Sport claim that Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has agreed a deal to join Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan goal machine’s agent Pierpaolo Triulzi and Bernabeu club president Florentino Perez have been locked in talks about a move with the two parties discussing a €50m deal that they hope Napoli will be amenable to.
Cavani is the subject of a €63m release clause but the intention is for the short-fall between the two valuations to be made up with the inclusion of a Real Madrid player in part-exchange.
Edinson Cavani managed 66 goals in his first two seasons at Napoli and has outdone himself with 27 goals in 26 matches thus far this term as his form has propelled the San Paolo side into genuine Serie A title contenders.
PSG are apparently also interested in the striker and this may well result in a bidding war to sign the Napoli man though this source claims Cavani has personally already made it clear he wants to join Real Madrid.
