Edinson Cavani: Happy at Napoli but linked with Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madr

Cavani has regularly been linked with a move away from Napoli, with Premier League champions Manchester City reportedly chasing the Uruguayan as a replacement for Mario Balotelli.

The Serie A club have previously insisted that Cavani will only be sold if the €63million (£54m) release clause in his contract is met, with the latest speculation claiming Real are lining up a summer bid.

Arsenal have also been rumoured to be admirers of Cavani and, while the forward is happy at Napoli, he is keeping an open mind regarding his long-term future.

"I know nothing about Arsenal's interest," Cavani told Radio Onda Cero. "I have only heard about it now.

"My future? I have a contract for four years but in football you never know what to expect.

"Barcelona and Real Madrid are teams which stimulate the imagination. But I only think about the present.

"I'm living the highest point of my career with Napoli and I want to concentrate on fighting for the scudetto. Along with my team-mates, we want to give a dream for our people."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
