Chelsea and Manchester United transfer target Edinson Cavani has asked his parents to stop publicly discussing his future, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 26-year-old Uruguayan international has been strongly linked with Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid and most recently Manchester United.

And his mum and dad have both repeatedly been quoted in the press regarding his summer transfer plans.

The latest report claims his mum revealed talks between Cavani and Real Madrid were at an advanced stage.

But Cavani has had enough, and wants his parents to just keep out of it while reaffirming his commitment to Napoli.

Speaking to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the Napoli forward says: "My father has talked about Real? I want to point out that these words are not coming from me.

"I've asked my parents a thousand times not to say any more. They can only hurt me. I belong to Napoli as it stands and that depends on the club.

"If another option presents itself, we will evaluate it. I will make myself clear on this point too - I've always said they're one of the best clubs in the world.

"We've all dreamed of playing for them, as we have with Barcelona, but now I'm at Napoli and very proud of the fact."

The former-Palermo forward went on to again insist he doesn't believe he's worth his €63m release clause.

The transfer saga looks set to become this summer's longest running battle between Europe's big clubs, with United the latest to join the race.

Cavani has been one of Italy's most prolific strikers in Serie 'A' since he signed for Napoli in 2010 - bagging 78 goals in 104 league appearances for the club.
