Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has revealed it would be a dream come true if his proposed move to Real Madrid goes through.

The Uruguay international has been linked with many European giants such as Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City.

But the striker, who is currently with the Uruguayan squad at the Confederations Cup in Brazil, admits it would be a dream if he moved to the Spanish capital.

"I am very calm about my future. Madrid are a great club and every player dreams of playing there," Cavani told Cadena COPE. "I am a Napoli player for now, though, and I am focused on the Confederations Cup. It is not only up to me what the clubs decide. There are other factors that must be taken into account. 

"There's a lot of talk about Madrid's interest, so we will see what happens. Nobody has said anything officially."

The 26-year old is currently under contract at Rafael Benitez's Napoli until June 2017. However, it has been reported that he has a release clause of £53.7m.

Cavani's father has recently said that his son's ideal destination is Madrid.

Chelsea had reportedly had a formal cash-plus-player offer involving Fernando Torres turned down by Napoli as they seem reluctant to let their star leave.

Cavani moved to Europe in 2007 when he joined Italian side Palermo. He spent three full seasons in Sicily, making 117 appearances and scoring 37 goals.

His form attracted Napoli in 2010, when he signed for a total fee of €17m. He has spent three seasons at the club, scoring 104 goals in 138 games.

He has shown his talent on the world stage with some impressive performances in the Champions League for Napoli and the World Cup during his 51 appearances for Uruguay.
