Report: Chelsea to fund Edinson Cavani swoop with Romelu Lukaku sale

Chelsea are reportedly keen to offload Romelu Lukaku in the summer in a bid to finance a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani.

Chelsea will reportedly sell Romelu Lukaku this summer in order to finance a big-money move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.

The 20-year-old is not believed to have a long-term future at Stamford Bridge under manager Jose Mourinho, despite the Belgium international boasting a total of 26 Premier League goals for Everton and West Bromwich Albion over the last 18 months.

The Portuguese is said to be plotting the exit of Lukaku - rated at around £23m - and, according to The Mirror, will reportedly reinvest the fee toward a switch for the Uruguay star.

Cavani is reported to have grown disillusioned with his role in the French capital this term, with the 26-year-old believed to be unhappy over being played out of position by PSG boss Laurent Blanc.
