Paris Saint-Germain broke the transfer record in the French league on Tuesday by signing Edinson Cavani from Napoli for 64 million euros.
Cavani, signed to a five-year contract, joins a PSG side that has spent very big the past few seasons in establishing itself as a new power broker in European club soccer.
This is the fifth most expensive transfer in history, behind Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United to Real Madrid), Zinedine Zidane (Juventus to Real Madrid), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Inter Milan to Barcelona) and Kaka (AC Milan to Real Madrid).
