Cavani flattered by Napoli links

Edinson Cavani has confessed that it is ‘nice’ to be linked with a return to Napoli, while it will be ‘special’ to play at the San Paolo again.

Cavani was awarded the 2018 Golden Foot for players 28 and over on Tuesday evening, and the Paris Saint-Germain striker was asked about recent speculation, which suggested Napoli were in talks to bring him back.

“It’s nice, but for now I’ve put the market to one side,” he told reporters.

“We’ll go for it at the San Paolo, but so will they. Going back to the stadium and seeing people I haven’t seen for some time will be special for me.”

The Uruguayan scored 104 goals in just 138 appearances for the Partenopei between 2010 and 2013.
