Bayern Munich are thinking about a summer bid for Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani, claims FIFA agent Pasquale Gallo.
This week Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis took to Twitter to confirm they were “willing to listen if a madman turned up with €70m.”
FIFA agent Gallo spoke to Radio Crc and gave some insider news on the rumours going round in Europe, though he does not represent Cavani.
“I don’t know if Cavani will go to Bayern Munich, but the German club has definitely thought about him, because he is among the top three strikers in Europe right now.
“Bayern are a virtuous club. It is not off the mark to say Bayern are looking at Cavani for the next transfer session.
“I will add that Mario Gomez is not the same player he was since the injury and the club needs reinforcements in attack.
“De Laurentiis talks about €70m for Cavani, but I think Napoli would buckle under an offer of €50m. Bayern have money and are ambitious, so they can invest.”
