Dad says Chelsea, Man City target Cavani wants Real Madrid

The father of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani says his son wants to sign for Real Madrid. Cavani is wanted by Real, along with Chelsea and Manchester City, this summer.

"My son wants Real Madrid, all that is missing is an agreement with Napoli," Luis Cavani commented to Marca TV. "There has already been contact with Real's lawyers.

"It is Cavani's intention to play for a side like Real and he has all the characteristics needed to do so.

"He's spoken to the family about his desire to play for Madrid, but he doesn't want to say that publicly so that he isn't seen in a bad light by his current club.

"The deal will cost around €65m and President Aurelio De Laurentiis will not negotiate at anything less.

"Let us hope that the transfer to Real Madrid happens, that negotiations start again and that a solution is found as soon as possible."
