Edinson Cavani says that he would like to play for one of 'the biggest clubs in the world' but insists there is nothing official to announce at the moment, amid speculation linking him with the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City and Monaco.

Sky Sports reports how the Napoli striker has been the subject of intense transfer interest in recent months, and it's heavily anticipated he will leave Italy during the summer.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen to bring Cavani to Stamford Bridge, but faces fierce competition for the Uruguay international's signature, with his former club Real Madrid also said to be weighing up a bid.

Manchester City have also been mooted as admirers of the South American star, though that was before the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium, so there interest might well have waned since.

Meanwhile, Monaco - who have already splashed the cash on the likes of James Rodriguez, Joao Moutinho, and Radamel Falcao - are also keen to make a big-money move for Cavani, as Claudio Ranieri looks to rival Paris Saint-Germain for the French title next season, following their promotion back to Ligue 1 in 2012/13.

Cavani is currently in Brazil to play in the Confederations Cup with Uruguay, and speaking at a media event on Wednesday ahead of today's clash against Nigeria, he emphasised that despite constant transfer speculation there is still nothing official to announce regarding his future.

"Everyone wants to play for the biggest clubs in the world, clubs with a lot of tradition," Cavani told Globo Esporte. "But nobody knows my future, I don't know anything. 

"I only know that I am a Napoli player. The truth is that there is nothing concrete, nothing official."
