Edinson Cavani remains coy on 'mystery' transfer talk

Published Add your comment

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani claims to be no closer to knowing where he'll be playing his football next season, having attracted interest from Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Sky Sports reports how speculation continues to surround the 26-year-old Uruguay international who will likely be the subject of one of the biggest transfer tussles this summer.

The clamour for Cavani's signature will intensify as soon as the transfer window reopens on July 1, with Chelsea and Manchester City the most likely Premier League destinations for the South American forward.

Meanwhile, Spanish rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona are also both monitoring his situation in Italy, where he is currently tied to a long-term contract at Stadio San Paolo.

Newly-appointed Napoli manager Rafa Benitez - who finished his interim spell at Stamford Bridge earlier this month - will be keen to keep Cavani in Naples, as he prepares to challenge for the Serie 'A' title next season.

And, judging by the player's latest comments, there is still a chance he could be a Napoli player come the start of the 2013/14 campaign. 

"It's all a mystery and no-one knows what will happen," he said. "Eventually it will all be sorted.

"There is nothing concrete at the moment. Only when you sign a contract are you part of a team. It is not a distraction for me. I'm comfortable with what I do."
