Napoli President to Meet Chelsea Over Edinson Cavani Move, But The Player Prefers Real Madrid

Tuesday brings in fresh new reports regarding Napoli's sought after striker Edinson Cavani, the 26-year-old has re-iterated that he will be deciding his future after turning out for his country during the Confederations Cup in South America.

Early on Tuesday the Italian media have reported that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that he will meet with Chelsea representatives on Wednesday this week, in order to discuss a deal and carve out a move for the Uruguayan International. 

Almost immedietly afterwards, Cavani himself has been quoted talking with Cadena COPE, stating that the La Liga champions Real Madrid "are a great club and every player dreams of playing there". This would seem that the player would prefer a move to The Bernabeu over Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

He also went on to state that " I am a Napoli player for now, and I am focused on the Confederations Cup. It's not up to me what the clubs decide, there are other factors to consider". Suggesting that although Madrid would be a dream move, the final decision is down to Napoli and the deals offered. 

From both of these contrasting reports today, it would appear that Chelsea may be looking to offer the best deal, but the player could possibly be wanting to push a deal through with Madrid. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been trying to bring in the all round forward for a couple of seasons now, and will seemingly push the boat out to hand Mourinho a world class striker to speahead his attack. 

It seems however, that Manchester City have slipped out of the chase, perhaps focusing on other targets.
