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”.
