Edinson Cavani: Linked with move to Chelsea

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has admitted he would be open to returning to former club Napoli if the chance arose.

The Uruguay striker forged his reputation in Naples on the back of his impressive goal haul of 104 strikes in 138 games between 2010 and 2013 before moving to PSG for a fee of around £40million.

Since then, the striker has continually been linked with a move to England, with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal credited with an interest.

But Cavani admits he would welcome a return to his former employers Napoli and told Corriere del Mezzogiorno: “Would I think about returning to Serie A? Sure.

“The future is always unpredictable and I would love to go back to the place where I spent three fantastic seasons.

“So would I go back to Napoli? Why not… I think in terms of the Scudetto, they may still struggle to top the table but they have an organised game that I like.

“I really hope that this is going to be their year.”

The Uruguayan’s current contract in the French capital expires in June 2018, meaning it would take a considerable offer to remove him for the French champions.

To date, Cavani has scored 40 Ligue 1 goals in 73 appearances for PSG.
