After transferring to Paris Saint-Germain for nearly €65 million ($86.7 million), departed Napoli striker Edinson Cavani wanted to thank his former club for catapulting him to world-class status.

So he picked a small phrase of thanks along with a gigantic page-full of his face.

It’s a gesture sure to find itself more than appreciated by Napoli fans, even if it’s a bit...grandiose, for lack of a better term.

The phrase reads “1,000 unforgettable days, 104 special moments lived with you. The Azzurri are in my heart forever. Thank you for all the love. Thanks Napoli.”

The 1,000 refers to his time with Napoli, approximately 2-1/2 years since his move over from Palermo. He scored 104 goals - or “special moments” - in his time with Napoli.

Cavani made his Ligue 1 debut Friday as well, coming on in the 71st minute of PSG’s league-opener against Montpellier.

Without further ado, the photo:

Seems like something out of a Dolce & Gabbana ad.
