Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is holding out hope of joining Real Madrid this summer.

Cavani has also been linked with Chelsea, while Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis confirmed this week in London that he'd offered the Uruguayan to Manchester City.

City are eager to do business, but Uruguayan media sources insist Cavani wants to wait until Real have exhausted all avenues to strike terms with Napoli for his transfer.
