Cavani 'in City and Real talks'

Edinson Cavani’s mother claims “he is negotiating with Manchester City and Real Madrid, but there’s nothing concrete with Chelsea.”

The Napoli hitman’s mother Berta Gomez spoke to a Uruguayan radio station about the transfer situation.

“There are many rumours, but when something does happen we’ll be the first to know,” she declared.

“Edi is negotiating with Manchester City and Real Madrid. The Napoli President spoke of the possibility of talks with Chelsea, but there is nothing concrete.

“In 15-20 days we will know more and be in a position to say something. He loves Napoli and in case he does leave he would never forget the love and affection of the people. He will be united with Napoli forever.”

Cavani has a €63m buy-out clause on his contract – around £53m – and is considering his options.

It has been reported that Manchester City will try to lower that sum by including Edin Dzeko in the deal, while Real Madrid are offering Gonzalo Higuain.
