If I were Conte, I would consider this trolling: either from gazzetta if it isn't true, or from marotta if he is indeed trying to get this player.
Indeed. I understand it's hard to give him Dzeko or Cavani (who's close to Benfica for ridiculously low wages btw) after signing Sanchez but there's huge distance between Dzeko and Bonazzoli. Bonazzoli isn't even the best ex Inter primavera striker available.
I fail to see how we cannot match Benfica`s offer, not to mention even better it!
Why pay millions for Dzeko or Giroud when he is available and Serie A proven?
Edinson Cavani is a step away from completing a move to Benfica according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The experienced Uruguayan national team player is set to join the Portuguese powerhouses on a free transfer having become a free agent after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired at the end of June.
Benfica have tabled a contract offer to Cavani that will see him earn €2.5 million a year, a significant decrease compared to what he was earning at Paris Saint-Germain, and are also prepared to offer him a generous signing on bonus of €8 million.
If true, that`s nothing for a sub of his caliber! BTW Dzeko is 34 years old while Cavani is 33.
