Edinson Cavani: Wanted by a host of Europe's top clubs

Chelsea and Manchester City are also reported to be keen on securing the Uruguayan's services to help improve their squads ahead of the new Premier League season.

But, speaking to 'El Partido de las 12', Cavani had nothing but praise for the La Liga giants when asked about a possible move.

Cavani said: "I am very calm. Real Madrid are a beautiful team, every player dreams of playing there when he is a child.

"Those are things that they are talking from behind, as it will soon be seen. But officially nobody has talked with me."

Cavani is currently with the Uruguay squad in Brazil which is taking part in the Confederations Cup and he says any talk about his future can wait until after the tournament.

Cavani added: "I am for now a Napoli player and I am focused on the Confederations Cup.

"What the clubs decide doesn't depend only on me, but also on other factors which will be talked about once the tournament is over."

Cavani hit 29 goals in 34 appearances for Napoli last season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
