Chelsea’s striker problem is a real cause of menace for them.
Their only striker is Tammy Abraham who is confident and bright. However, is the only in form player and is in danger of real burn out.
Chelsea came close to solving it in January when they were linked with moves for Lyon’s Moussa Dembele, PSG’s Edinson Cavani amongst other strikers.
While Lyon rejected Chelsea’s bid, the case with Cavani was different.
A number of teams like Atletico Madrid and Manchester United were also linked with him. However, the striker, whose contract ends in the summer has his heart set only on joining Atletico Madrid. Hence, Chelsea failed to lure him in, as explained by his brother and agent.
“Cavani was willing to receive less than with PSG,” Walter Guglielmone, as per The Mirror.
“Atletico could not cover the total economic cost of the operation and PSG did not want to lower the amounts he was asking for. Atletico Madrid did not close the agreement.
“Do you think that Edi did not play for almost a month at PSG so that I could drop the operation for a commission and that Edi did not fulfil his dream of going to Atletico Madrid?
“If it were for money, Edi would have gone to England, Manchester or Chelsea.”
