Edinson Cavani completes move from Napoli to Paris St Germain
Italy midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini became Sunderland’s ninth signing of the close season
Edinson Cavani signs for an undisclosed sum for Paris Saint-Germain.
Paris St Germain have completed the signing of highly-rated Napoli striker Edinson Cavani for an undisclosed fee on a five-year contract. Cavani had been linked with a host of European clubs this summer, with Manchester City and Real Madrid also rumoured to be interested in the Uruguyan forward.
However, the French champions announced the news on their website that they had signed their man.
Meanwhile, Italy midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini became Sunderland’s ninth signing of the close season when the Premier League club agreed a reported €9.8-million deal with Serie A champions Juventus yesterday. The terms were settled last week but the deal was not finalised until after Giaccherini’s wife gave birth to daughter Caterina.
