Cavani: "Who could say no to Real Madrid or Chelsea?"

Clive Mason

Everything we've heard recently regarding the Edinson Cavani has had Real Madrid in pole position for the Uruguay international's heart -- if not his services. Daddy Cavani has claimed that they're his dream destination, and Mummy Cavani didn't even mention Chelsea when listing teams interested in her son's services.

But!

Who could turn down Chelsea indeed? Although Napoli owner Aurelio de Laurentiis has claimed that the Blues haven't made an official approach for the striker, it seems abundantly clear that they're nonetheless well in the Cavani hunt. After all, Cavani's likely to be fairly informed as to who's going to be bidding for him. Don't expect this story to go away anytime soon.

Note the lack of mention of Manchester City in that mix. Take that, other nouveau-riche team. In your face(s).

PS: If you talk about how overrated Cavani is without having watched him regularly with Napoli, the rest of the community reserves the right to laugh at you nonstop.
