Edinson Cavani: Uruguay international would not be drawn over his future

Edinson Cavani: Uruguay international would not be drawn over his future

The Napoli striker has been making headlines throughout the transfer window with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City all said to be chasing his signature.

Cavani has a well-publicised £54million buy-out clause in his contract which the Serie A club hope will be enough to ward off potential suitors this summer.

There were reports on Saturday evening that Chelsea had agreed terms with the 26-year-old, but no confirmation has followed and the gifted forward spoke of his frustration prior to Sunday's third-fourth place play-off at the constant speculation over his future.

And in the wake of the defeat to Italy, in which he scored twice as the match finished 2-2 after extra-time, Cavani was keen to not add fuel to the transfer fire.

Cavani was quoted by Rai TV as saying: "Everything I say at the moment could be misunderstood, so I prefer not to talk about the future.

"I'm going on holiday with my family and then I will come back to Italy to consider the whole situation."

Cavani demonstrated his talent once again on Sunday night, with his first goal a neat first-time finish into the corner and the second a stunning long-range free-kick.

And he added: "Despite our loss after penalties against Italy, it has been a positive tournament for Uruguay."
