Soccer: PSG may be 'days away' from signing Napoli's Cavani

Rome, July 5 - Napoli's Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani may be just days away from moving to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in one of soccer's most expensive transfers of all time, according to Italian media reports. The rich French club are reportedly willing to pay the 63-million-euros release clause in the striker's contract with Napoli in order to beat competition from some of Europe's top clubs and obtain his services. London side Chelsea had also targeted the 26-year-old, who is nicknamed the 'matador', but gave up after failing to get Napoli to agree to a fee below the get-out clause. Spanish giants Real Madrid, however, are reportedly still in the hunt for him. According to the reports, PSG Sporting Director drew up the draft of an agreement in talks with Napoli this week. Now the French club must reach an agreement for personal terms with the player, with the media saying he could earn around 10 million euros a year. Cavani has scored 104 goals for Napoli since joining them from Palermo in 2010.
