Luis Cavani: “My son wants to join Real”


Edinson Cavani’s name continues to be touted as a summer transfer target for Real Madrid. Luis Cavani, the Napoli striker’s father, spoke on MARCA TV programme ‘Futboleros’ about the offers the player has received outside of Italy and said that interest from ‘Los Blancos’ was the most appealing.

“Edinson would like to play for a team like Real Madrid. That’s what he wants to do and is open to a move. Our son told the family in private that he wants to play for Real Madrid, but if he publically states his desire to leave it will not be well-received at Napoli”, the player’s father revealed.

The Uruguayan forward’s parent went on to add that contact had already been made: “There has been contact with the Real Madrid lawyers and we are waiting for the clubs to speak to each other”.

Luis Cavani knows full well that it will be difficult for a deal to go through, due to Napoli’s high asking-price for the striker, despite the player’s willingness to leave: “It would be great if it happened and the clubs could meet as soon as possible to agree everything. Who wouldn’t want to play for Real Madrid? But it’s not only down to Edi. We’re talking about €65 million and Napoli won’t take anything less. But the player’s wish is not to stay”.

Cavani’s mother admits to Real and City talks

Edinson Cavani is one this transfer window’s big scores. The Uruguayan striker is leaving Napoli, and the bids to sign him have begun.

The latest reports pointed to Chelsea as the frontrunner, but the footballer’s mother has provided an unexpected twist with respect to her son’s future. “Edi is in talks with Real Madrid and Manchester City.”

Cavani’s mother did not hold back in her statements to a Montevideo radio station, and assured that her son’s future will be settled very soon.

“He’ll decide where he’s going in two weeks. Napoli will always be in my heart. The Napoli president talked to us about an offer from Chelsea, but there is nothing certain yet,” she revealed.
