Edinson Cavani is set to demand a £300,000 a week contract at his new club, with talks set to begin with Manchester United and Chelsea this week, the Daily Mirror reports.

The strikers agents will reveal his eye-watering demands during meetings with the Premier League clubs this week, with Real Madrid also in the race to sign the prolific striker.

Manchester United only recently entered the race to sign Cavani and could be ready to bid the £53 million needed to activate the strikers buy-out clause.

Napoli have repeatedly stated that they will not sell Cavani for any less than £53 million and Manchester City appear to be out of the race because of their reluctance to pay that amount of money.

Cavani recently stated that he was unhappy about the amount of money that Napoli are demanding for him and may have to lower his contract demands or risk staying with the Italian club.

All three clubs are well aware of the financial fair play rules and they cannot spend the £53 million transfer fee and then the huge wage demands that Cavani is proposing.

Napoli will do everything they can to keep Cavani at the club with new boss Rafa Benitez seeing the striker as instrumental to his plans for next season.
