Cavani unaware of Atletico interest

Edinson Cavani’s entourage know nothing of alleged interest in the Napoli man from Atletico Madrid.

The Uruguayan is being linked with the Spanish club as a possible replacement for Radamel Falcao should the latter be sold.

“If Atletico Madrid want to pay his €62m release fee then they can have their say, but there has been no contact and we don’t know if they want to buy him,” Pierpaolo Triulzi, one of the player’s agents, told Marca.

“We don’t know what will happen in the future, but the player is very happy where he finds himself right now.

“There have been a lot of offers for him in the past, but Napoli didn’t want to let him go and got him to sign a contract extension instead.”

Cavani, who cost the Azzurri €17m, has scored 80 goals for Napoli since his 2010 switch from Palermo.
