Edinson Cavani has frightened Napoli fans by admitting “I’d like to play in Spain. When the time comes, I’ll know.”
The Uruguayan hitman has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the San Paolo, as Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all shown an interest.
“I am used to it, as since the moment I arrived here there has been talk of transfers,” Cavani told Uruguayan newspaper El Pais de Montevideo.
“But I am certain that when the time comes, and when there is the concrete possibility of a move, I will know before anyone else does.
“Now I let people talk and don’t pay any attention to those rumours. I am concentrated only on what I have to do for Napoli.
“I really like English football as well as Italian, but I am also a fan of Spanish football. There are more spaces there and it’s great for a striker who likes to move around on the pitch. Spain is ideal for me and I’d be very happy to play there.”
