It actually feels like every transfer window there are the same handful of players that get linked with a move to Chelsea.
I honestly believe that when Edinson Cavani is 70 years old and enjoying his retirement with his grand kids, he will STILL be linked with a move to Chelsea!
Yes, as you’ve guessed, the Paris Saint-Germain striker is a reported target for Chelsea during this transfer window once again, according to French outlet L’Équipe, as translated by The Daily Mail.
They go on to claim that both Chelsea and Manchester United ‘have made contact’ with Cavani, who was thought to be a new Atletico Madrid player already.
But the report states that even though he has made a preliminary agreement to join Atletico, he could still change his mind.
Chelsea fans of course have had their say on the links, and this bunch in particular, are not too keen on the idea of a player who will be 33-years old next month!

Why we always go for players when they are past their prime or finished
Cavani doesn’t have much left

Oh the annual Cavani link. We’ve had the annual Isco one already. I’ll look forward to this one again about this time next year Simon?
