Italian giant Inter Milan are keen on landing Edison Cavani from French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
The club is reported by Daily Mail to have submitted a bid of £42 million for the PSG forward. The reports claim that the bid submission has been confirmed by the Italian press, no matter how unlikely the move is as the French club already released Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Corriere dello Sport say Inter Milan met with the management of PSG in the past week after they played their International Champions Cup game. Inter Milan are hoping to sell their star forward Mauro Icardi to Napoli who sold their star forward to Juventus for a record breaking fee. Inter believes that Napoli would be easily be able to afford their price tag for Icardi, which they will use to fund their deal with PSG for Edison Cavani.
Cavani, 29, was on display when PSG defeated Inter Milan 3-1 at the International Champions Cup. Cavani joined PSG in 2013 for £54 million and is seen as Inter Milan as one of the few reliable forwards that can exceed Icardi who scored 16 goals in the last Serie A term.
The Sporting Director of PSG Patrick Kluivert is reluctant on letting Cavani go after losing Ibrahimovic to Manchester United. PSG have won the French title for years and are looking at breaking through the barrier in Europe. They need a top striker like Cavani, hence the deal is not likely to happen but Inter are willing to try their best.
PSG could also lose Blaise Matudi as the player’s agent Mino Raiola is looking on forcing a move for the player away from the club. Juventus are willing to sign the player or Zenit player Axel Witsel as they prepare for a possible Pogba departure.
