In recent days, Edinson Cavani has revealed that he is talking to other clubs, despite being under contract with Serie A side Napoli. Now, his mother has given an interview on Uruguayan radio in which she has named the teams that her son is in contact with: Real Madrid and Manchester City.
“Edi is talking to Madrid and City,” said Berta Gómez, who regularly speaks to the media about her son. She then went on to suggest that Chelsea – under former Madrid coach José Mourinho – are trailing in the race for the player’s signature. “The Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has spoken to Chelsea but there’s nothing concrete.”
Gómez even proposed a time-scale for Cavani’s transfer, declaring: “In fifteen or twenty days we’ll know his destination. When there’s something concrete, his family will be the first to know. In any case, I assure you that Edinson loves Napoli and if he has to leave, he’ll never forget the love and affection shown by the people there.”
