There has been a hint of trouble in Paradise, as the two high-profile teammates of the French club Paris Saint Germain, Neymar, and Edinson Cavani were seen engaged in a row on the pitch in their match against fellow Ligue 1 side Lyon, which the former French champions won by 2-0.
This spat between the two superstars has led to speculation that there might be a significant change in the team composition of the Ligue 1 outfit in the forthcoming days.
The row started over a penalty, which the Uruguayan striker wanted to take but was denied the opportunity to add to his goal tally by his new teammate and currently the world’s costliest player Neymar, who went on to take it and led his side to victory over their arch-rivals Lyon. However, it did not end on the pitch and rumours are everywhere that the Brazilian superstar has demanded to the club authority to offload Cavani as soon as possible.
The situation being this, a number of big-name clubs from all over Europe are keeping a close eye on the development of the situation and are looking for a viable opportunity to bag the 30 year old striker from his present cluib Paris Saint Germain, with Premier League club Chelsea looking to be the most interested in the player looking to sign him in the next transfer window that will commence in January.
The Uruguayan international has been one of the most successful players for the French giants, leading the club to a number of triumphs since his arrival at Parc Des Princes in 2013. He has been an integral part of the sides, making a huge impact with a staggering 206 appearances under his belt, getting 139 goals for the French side so far in his tenure.
However, now that there is a possibility of this bond getting broken, the present Premier League champions Chelsea are looking interested to add to their strength for this season. The Blues already have young forwards like Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi at their disposal and the possible inclusion of an experienced campaigner like Cavani can be a big boost for them, who is sure to provide a substantial sharpness to their attack for the rest of the season.
The man in charge at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte, is well aware of how lethal the 30-year-old marksman can be when in his best form as he watched him closely when he played for the Italian club Napoli. The Italian mastermind will be more than happy to have him in his team so that he can rotate his options and get goals from all his strikers.
