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.

Manchester City look to replace freshly sacked Mancini with Pellegrini

Manuel-Pellegrini01Roberto Mancini was upset heading into Saturday’s FA Cup final between Wigan and Manchester City, believing his club hadn’t done enough to deflect reports of him being replaced. It turns out there was reason behind the club’s actions.

Mancini was sacked on Monday, despite his outspoken confidence that he would remain the Blues manager following City’s disappointing loss to Wigan. His firing only served to strengthen the position of floating rumors that Málaga’s current coach, Manuel Pellegrini, would take his place.

However, Pellegrini publicly came out and denied the reports following his team’s match against Sevilla. “I categorically deny that I am the new Manchester City coach,” he said. “I’ve been fortunate enough, and very proud, that every year the big Clubs are interested in me.  I have an agreement with Málaga not to talk to anyone and nothing has been agreed with any other outfit.”

Despite his statement, it is widely believed that an agreement has already taken shape and Malaga will soon be in the running for a new manager.
