Cavani is a thing of beauty, even when you cannot see the ball in the shot.

Edinson Cavani is probably going to be playing for someone other than Napoli next season. And with each passing day, that someone feels less likely to be Manchester City.

The Daily Mail's latest story on the matter, penned by Simon Jones, notes that Chelsea is officially in the chase with a £42.7 million bid.

It's like a ransom standoff, except (thankfully) without someone's safety at risk.
