Cavani Madrid rumours not Real

Edinson Cavani's agent has rubbished suggestions that the Napoli striker is wanted by Real Madrid.

Cavani has been linked with the Liga giants after a goal-packed campaign at the San Paolo following his summer switch from Palermo.

However, speaking with Radio CRC, Claudio Anellucci dismissed the notion that an offer from Spain had been tabled.

"It is nice to hear praise from a Coach such as Jose Mourinho, but there has been no offer," he stated.

"The Spanish club haven't contacted Napoli or ourselves. It's just all talk, nothing more than fantasy football."

Cavani got back to scoring ways on Sunday night with a brace in the 2-1 win over Roberto Donadoni's Cagliari.

The Azzurri, who occupy third, are now just three points behind leaders Milan and one point adrift of second-placed Inter. Udinese are fourth.
