Cavani to parents: Please stop talking

Quit it mummy you're embarrassing me
Quit it mummy you're embarrassing me
Vittorio Zunino Celotto

Bored of the Edinson Cavani talk? Yes, you probably are. But worse than quotes from Napoli, the Italian media and Cavani himself has been the chatter from his parents, who've been blathering on about how their son definitely wants to go to Real Madrid and no he doesn't want people talking about this but we're jerks so we're going to do it anyway.

Yeah, it's been pretty annoying. So annoying, in fact, that Cavani himself has stepped in:

My father has talked about Real? I want to point out that these words are not coming from me. I've asked my parents a thousand times not to say any more. They can only hurt me.

I belong to Napoli as it stands and that depends on the club. If another option presents itself, we will evaluate it.

It's probably too little too late, considering that the internet woodwork is currently crawling with people insisting that he'd favour a Real Madrid move above everything else. But it's nice to see him publicly saying the right things and refusing to rule anything out. If we never hear from Mummy and Daddy Cavani again, it'll be too soon.
