Mancini has his eye on Cavani
For all you Gunners fans who think Cavani is only a phone call and a signature away from wearing red: not so fast. The current EPL champs happen to be scouting the Uruguayan striker, too, according to Caught Offside. The Citizens would be ready to spend $40 million to make him wear another shade of blue (even if that shade is extremely similar).
The same report says that Wenger found Cavani’s price to be a bit of a “stumbling block.”
It has also been reported before (specifically, by the Mirror) that Chelsea were ready to make a move for the player.
While that might not be a reason for Arsenal to back away from Cavani, it is more than enough reason for Cavani to back away from Arsenal. While the Gunners are struggling to crack their way into the Europa League, sitting at the sixth EPL spot and three points behind Everton, Manchester City are enjoying another good year and are hunting Manchester United down for the top spot in the league.
If you are Edinson Cavani, which colors would you want to wear? The ones that are going to the Champions League, right?
If that is the case, Arsenal fans should start losing their hopes. Now.
