Reports in Italy suggest Uruguayan international could even sign contract extension.
Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has revealed he is growing impatient with the on-going speculation surrounding his future.
It is understood that Chelsea are stepping up their interest in the prolific striker, while Real Madrid remain interested but are swaying towards a deal with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.
Nevertheless, the 26-year-old is currently preparing for the third-place play-off game in the Confederations Cup, as Uruguay take on Italy on Sunday.
However, the Napoli star was again quizzed on his future in Naples, which led to an angry response to reporters as he wants to focus his complete attention on the game in hand for his country.
“Your talking at the beginning didn’t disturb me but now I have to confess these rumours are bothering me,” he told reporters as quoted by Goal.com.
“You’re talking too much about things you shouldn’t be talking about now. I’m still engaged in this competition and just thinking about the next game [versus Italy].
“I play in Italy, I know all of them. I was expecting them to play a great tournament, so I must congratulate them. But tomorrow, we want to win. I want to raise my country in the world standings as much as possible.”
Cavani is still expected to leave Italy this summer, but it remains to be seen whether either of the interested parties meet his €63m release clause fee.
Owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has been clear in his stance on the situation, and he is unwilling to offer any sort of discount on that fee.
In contrast, according to Tuttosport, Cavani is considering a contract extension with the club which would raise his wages to €7.5m and would tie him to the club until 2018.
Other reports suggest that he has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, and therefore at this stage there is plenty of confusion surrounding his future.
However, the player himself has been clear on the situation, and refuses to give anything away until he returns to Italy after the Confederations Cup has concluded.
“At this moment everything is tense in Naples,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport as reported by football-italia.net.
“Anything I say gets misinterpreted, so I prefer to stay calm. We’ll see what happens later on. Nobody knows what could happen tomorrow or in a year, so I just carry on with my mentality.”
