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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
