Cavani plays down Chelsea & Manchester City transfer talk

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has played down talk surrounding a transfer to either Chelsea or Manchester City this summer.

The Uruguayan international has been heavily linked with a move away from Italy, with Spanish giants Real Madrid also reported to be keen on the 26-year-old forward.

However, Cavani insists he is happy with life in Naples, and is fully focused on continuing to grow and improve as a player in Serie ‘A’.

But, the former Palermo star did admit that he would speak to the club president if an enticing offer for his services came in.

"Real Madrid, Chelsea and (Manchester) City are interested in me? I just think about Napoli,” he told Ovacion Digital.

"If an important offer were to come in, I will talk with president (Aurelio) De Laurentiis.

"I'm fine in Italy, I have grown as a man there and as a player with the Serie A experience."

Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers in recent weeks, despite the lack of a permanent manager at Stamford Bridge following Rafa Benitez’s departure.

The Blues are light in the position, with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba the only senior options available in west London.

And, Cavani would add some serious strength to the Chelsea attack if he were to join, having notched 38 times in all competitions last term.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are another club keen to strengthen up-front this summer despite the lack of a permanent manager at the Etihad Stadium.

Mario Balotelli’s exit in January means the Citizens have a potential spot to fill alongside Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko.

Cavani wouldn’t be the cheapest option, but Manchester City would have no problem finding the cash to bring the 47-cap international to the club.
