Chelsea target Cavani denies pining for Real Madrid: Dad's wrong!

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has cooled talk of wanting a move to Real Madrid.

Amid reports last night of an agreement with Chelsea, Cavani refuted claims made by his father that he wanted to move to Madrid.

"My father said that I would love to play at Real? This is not good. I must tell the world that, when he talks about my family, I'm not doing it, is not Edinson Cavani speaking. I've requested a thousand times to my family not to speak, because they can only hurt me.

"I belong to Napolis, and everything depends on the club."

Naples radio Radio Marte reported last night that Chelsea have had a €58 million offer for Cavani accepted.
