Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has given Chelsea a huge boost in the race for Cavani after conceding Cavani isn’t close to joining Atletico Madrid.

“There is absolutely nothing with the player,” Cerezo told Onda Cero, as reported by AS.

“We need to score goals and we have great goalscorer, but what we are missing now is a bit of luck and we are not taking our chances.

“Transfers are always complicated but at the moment there is nothing.”
