Real Madrid have been linked once more with a massive-money move for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, and the possible transfer would have undoubted consequences for Real themselves and the wider transfer market.
With the Uruguayan having seen his name alongside that of Real several times over the past few months, ESPN have given perhaps the clearest indication yet that the move could happen:
Luis Cavani [Edinson's father] said there had been contact between the Spanish club and Napoli but it might take an offer of €60m to seal the deal. "Napoli has rejected offers from many teams," Cavani told the Madrid station. "But I think that they'd sell him for an offer of €60m. There is a 50% possibility he will sign for Real Madrid, but the negotiation with Napoli is difficult."
With Real Madrid in second place this season in La Liga, way off first spot and not looking amongst the biggest favourites for Champions League success either, the addition of the powerful front man would be a clear indication that they aim to bounce back next term.
Here are five repercussions that the move could have for the club.
