Chelsea and Manchester City on alert with Cavani ready to move on

By 03 January 2013 09:49

One of Europe's leading football agents believes Manchester City and Chelsea target Edinson Cavani will leave Napoli in the summer - and has already chosen his favoured destination.

Both Premier League clubs have long been linked with Cavani and were expected to approach Napoli this winter.

However, the club recently adjusted his contract to include a release clause of around £60m and that has put the pair off for now.

They are expected to come back in for the Uruguayan in the summer and super agent Mino Raiola, who represents the likes of Mario Balotelli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has given his take on the situation.

"For now Cavani will stay, but I wouldn't be so sure about that once June arrives," Raiola told Il Mattino.

"I'm sure there are clubs ready to pay that. But only five clubs in the world can afford to do that - Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain.

"You are intelligent enough on your own to understand where Cavani will play his football next season."
