Napoli woo Edinson Cavani with £6million-a-year deal

Posted on by

first_imgNapoli are preparing to offer Edinson Cavani a huge £6million-a-year deal to bring him back to the San Paolo, seven years after leaving for PSG. The Uruguayan spent three goal laden seasons with the Serie A side, smashing in 104 strikes in 134 games and winning the Coppa Italia in 2012. Those stats earned him a £58m move to PSG in 2013, leading the line for the French giants through the rest of the decade and forming powerful attacking partnerships with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Angel Di Maria, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. However, the 33-year-old has finally been displaced this season, with loan star Mauro Icardi scoring 20 goals in 31 games this term. Cavani has not signed a new deal keeping him in France for 2021, and with the striker halfway out the exit door already, Napoli are lining up a sensational return, according to TuttoSport. Cavani would be more than welcome back at the San Paolo, with Napoli enduring a difficult season after their second place finish last term.

The Naples side sacked Carlo Ancelotti in December, bringing in Gennaro Gattuso, with their maverick owner Aurelio De Laurentiis threatening to dock players’ wages after a slow start. They now sit in sixth, 24 points adrift of league leaders Juventus after 26 games – scoring just 41 goals. Cavani’s season has been just as unsuccessful, managing just four goals in Ligue 1. He has already been linked to a move to the MLS this season, with David Beckham’s Inter Miami a possible destination. Boca Juniors have also shown interest, with the club’s president aiming to sign Cavani in the summer. However, he has now reversed that claim, saying the star would cost too much.

NBA playoffs 2019: Early East upsets only heighten free-agency anxiety

Posted on by

first_imgIrving, despite 6-for-17 shooting, still managed 20 points in an 84-74 slog that resembled something out of the 2004 Pacers playoff catalog.By Sunday night, order was restored in the East, with the Pistons receiving a 35-point drubbing in Milwaukee as seven Bucks notched double-figure scoring, including Middleton, who starred (24.7 points) in last year’s postseason.Still, the upsets were the story in the East’s opening games, and though there’s obviously plenty to time for the Raptors and Sixers to recover and move on to Round 2, those upsets were good reminders of how much is at stake in the East playoffs: probably, at least, the fate of six players and $1 billion. Malcolm Brogdon has not played since March, recovering from a plantar fascia tear. Yet he remains one of the handful of players on the conference’s top four teams whose long-term fate could be decided by these playoffs in the East.Brogdon is looking at a restricted free-agent contact next summer — no matter how quickly he heals — of four years and just north of $60 million, according to executives around the league. As one general manager told SN last week, Brogdon will be due a deal that counts as “Marcus Smart-plus.” NBA PLAYOFFS 2019:Full schedule | Picks from first round to FinalsSmart signed for four years and $52 million with Boston last summer. Brogdon, a good defender who had been the only player this year to go 50/40/90 (field-goal/3-point/free-throw shooting percentages) will be due a bump up from that.That deal could be contingent, though, on how deep the Bucks’ run into the playoffs goes and whether ownership determines that this 60-win group is worth keeping together at all costs. Brogdon will be caught up in those decisions.His teammate, Khris Middleton? Probably still a max player (or something close) as he comes off a season in which consistency was still a problem but his overall production was very good. Even as his scoring dipped to 18.3 points per game, his rebounding (6.0) and assists (4.3) were career highs.Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard and Boston’s Kyrie Irving? Max contracts ahead. Philly’s Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler? Likely max contracts, too.”There’s a lot riding on the playoffs in the East,” one executive told SN. “Because a lot of these decisions from the players’ standpoint and the teams’ standpoint are going to be impacted by who wins and who loses.”Five max guys plus Brogdon, who could return in the second round, represent around $1 billion of potential spending just two-and-a-half months from now. And after a head-scratching, brow-furrowing opening weekend of the East’s postseason, it’s anyone’s guess how that spending will pan out.  The Sixers and Raptors lost their openers. Toronto got a terrible game from point guard Kyle Lowry, who failed to score while the journeyman who ran point opposite him — Orlando veteran D.J. Augustin — racked up 25 points.Leonard was himself, with 25 points and six rebounds, but he and Marc Gasol had a miscommunication on the game-winning shot from Augustin with 3.4 seconds remaining, and Leonard missed a chance to tie Game 1 on a 3-point attempt with 1.7 seconds left.👌.J. AUGUSTIN #BlueAndWhiteIgnite pic.twitter.com/ZY0lkftNLB— Orlando Magic (@OrlandoMagic) April 13, 2019OFFSEASON PREVIEWS:Lakers | Knicks | Bulls | Pelicans | MavericksIt’s likely that the Raptors recover to beat the Magic. We can’t be so sure about the Sixers, however.There were no blank boxes on the checklist of things that could have gone wrong for Philadelphia on Saturday. The health of Joel Embiid, dealing with a knee issue, was the big concern, and Embiid (22 points, 15 rebounds, five blocks) did not look 100 percent, going 5-for-15 from the field.But there were also fears that the Nets could expose the Sixers on the perimeter with their deep stable of guards. D’Angelo Russell had 26 points and Joe Harris had 13. Benchmates Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie combined for 41 points, and in all, the four Brooklyn guards were 29-for-64 (45.3 percent) from the floor and 10-for-18 (55.6 percent) from the 3-point line.Sixers point guard Ben Simmons, who struggled in last year’s postseason, did not inspire confidence, either. He was a minus-21 (as was shooting guard J.J. Redick), finishing with nine points, three assists and three turnovers.The Sixers reserves were outscored, 59-26. There were bonus items on the Sixers’ do-not-do checklist, too. Harris played 41 minutes and scored four points. Amir Johnson was fined for checking his cellphone on the bench. Simmons fired back at the booing the team took from Sixers fans, and if there’s one place in which you don’t want to challenge the fans, it’s Philadelphia.The ship was righted for the East’s top seeds on Sunday, even after a scare in Boston. The fifth-seeded Pacers led by nine points with 40 seconds to go in the first half before the Celtics rattled off a 24-3 run that went into the third quarter, giving Boston control of the game over an overmatched Indiana bunch.last_img read more
