, Man Utd and Chelsea transfer blow with Edinson Cavanis agent and brother in Madrid for talks over Atletico move

EDINSON CAVANI is set to turn down a move to the Premier League in favour of joining Atletico Madrid, according to reports.

The Uruguayan’s brother and agent has jetted to the Spanish capital to hold further talks with the club as he haggles over a potential wage packet.

Edinson Cavani is closing in on a move to Atletico Madrid

Cavani’s availability this month has put Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United on high alert.

The 32-year-old told the French giants he wants out of the club having been limited to just nine league appearances.

He was also left out of Sunday’s victory over Lille fuelling speculation that his move away from Ligue 1 was edging closer.

Both Prem giants are desperate to land a striker this month but were stumbling over Cavani’s wage demands thought to top a whopping 360,000-a-week.

But it is believed that Cavani, who has won five league titles in France, has always preferred a move to Atletico over England.

According to AS, negotiations between Atletico and PSG are complicated but continue to progress.

His brother is attempting to secure the best possible contract and the publication even suggests the player could be unveiled before Friday ahead of the Madrid derby with Real on Saturday.

Boss Diego Simeone will be desperate to complete a deal before the weekend and give him a baptism of fire inside the Bernabeu.

The Spanish side’s biggest obstacle remains the wage allowance introduced by LaLiga in 2013 to help teams handle their finances responsibly.

Atletico are reportedly at their limit of their 324.5million annual wage budget and are looking to cash in on the likes of winger Thomas Lemar.
