Some Chelsea supporters were in awe of Edinson Cavani on Saturday after he scored a super double for Uruguay at the World Cup to knock Portugal out of the competition.
Powering his country into the lead with a big header in the first half, Cavani struck again in the second half with a delicious curved finish to send his side through to the quarter-finals with a 2-1 victory.
The Paris Saint-Germain proved once again that he is one of the best centre forwards in the entire world.
He’s now scored three goals in the tournament, although did limp off with injury midway through the second half, worrying Uruguay supporters.
Plenty of Chelsea fans took to Twitter after his phenomenal display, believing he could be the perfect addition to the Blues to replace the faltering Alvaro Morata. It would of course be difficult to sign him given his quality and PSG’s strong financial status.
Here’s a selection of some of the Chelsea reaction to his double…
Cavani is absolutely incredible, I'd gladly accept him at Chelsea

I would make a bid for Cavani to get him to Chelsea. He is much better than Higuian #Cavani

I still wish Chelsea managed to sign Cavani a few years ago.

Edinson Cavani. Always said it. I'll say it again. He's gold! Like a predator, he takes his chances well. Always wanted him at Chelsea. Unfortunately, he chose PSG. What a player. #WorldCup
