sports Updated: Jul 17, 2013 00:24 IST

Edinson Cavani was on Tuesday officially unveiled as Paris Saint-Germain’s latest mega-signing, the striker joining the French champions for a Ligue 1 record 64 million euros from Napoli.

The 26-year-old Uruguay international, Serie A’s top scorer last season with 29 goals, has joined Laurent Blanc’s expensively assembled Qatari-backed side on a five-year contract. The previous highest French transfer was set earlier this year, when Colombia forward Radamel Falcao signed for Monaco from Atletico Madrid for around 60 million euros.
