PSG offer Chelsea target Cavani to Real Madrid

PSG have offered Cavani to Real Madrid after he was involved in a bust-up with Neymar.

The pair argued on the pitch over who should take a penalty during the 2-0 win over Lyon, with reports suggesting that the discontent then continued in the dressing room as their teammates were forced to intervene and keep them apart.

"We prepare for the games and we know who takes corners and penalties", he said, as quoted by Marca.

Cavani has entered his fifth season at the club and has scored 139 goals for PSG during his time there, so he's unlikely to relinquish set-piece and spot-kick responsibilities lightly, particularly after he stepped out of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's shadow a year ago with 49 goals in 50 matches. Initially, Dani Alves stripped Cavani of the ball as the latter was preparing to take a free-kick and handed it to Neymar instead.

'[Cavani] deserves respect, ' Forlan told Uruguayan radio station Radio Sport 890.

Forlan feels his countryman, Cavani deserved better, saying Neymar would never have done similar thing to Messi at Barcelona. He was like a little boy annoying him.

He slammed Neymar for his behaviour and also had a pop at veteran Brazilian Alves, who played a part in stealing the ball away from Cavani.

Cavani could be open to a switch to either Chelsea or Napoli but, with Alvaro Morata likely to be the Blues' number one striking option and former club I Partenopei not wanting to shell out £120,000-a-week in wages for him, those options appear unlikely.
