Cavani Wants Napoli Talks To Resolve Future ‘Really Soon’ After Move Reports
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Edinson Cavani wants talks with Napoli to resolve his future.
Edinson Cavani wants talks with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis to resolve his future ‘really soon’ after hearing ‘untrue rumours’ while away in Brazil, according to Sky Sports News.
The Uruguay international has filled the back pages in recent weeks with Sky Sports claiming Chelsea and Manchester City are keen on luring him to the Premier League, while Spanish giants Real Madrid are also believed to hold an interest in the prolific hitman.
A reported £54m buy-out clause – which expires on the 10th August – has so far put off any interested party from making a bid, but a move this summer could still be on the cards and with Uruguay knocked out of the Confederations Cup on Wednesday night following a 2-1 defeat to Brazil, Cavani has admitted he wants to speak with Napoli to resolve his future in the near future.
“I love Naples. It’s my town and my heart is there. But when I was here in Brazil I’ve heard untrue rumours and things about me,” Cavani told the media in South America.
“For this reason, now I want to talk as soon as possible with president De Laurentiis.
“We must clear ourselves. I’ll talk with him, as it’s done between men, really soon.” Cavani’s quoted as saying by Sky Sports
As one of the world’s hottest properties, it’s no surprise there is speculation linking Cavani with a big-money move this summer and there are only a select few clubs who could realistically afford to buy him.
New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho could be on the look-out for a new front man with both Fernando Torres and Demba Ba failing to establish themselves last season, while Man City are expected to replace Carlos Tevez after selling him to Juventus, and Cavani would be an excellent addition for either side.
