Uruguayan’s parents have been outspoken on the striker’s future.
Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has pleaded with his family to stop talking about his future as he hints at staying in Naples.
The Uruguayan is currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup, and while he has remained coy on his club future, both of his parents have been forthcoming in their views on where he would prefer to move.
Real Madrid and Chelsea have been linked with offers, although at this stage neither have made an official bid worthy of acceptance from Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.
The extravagant movie mogul has maintained throughout the speculation that Cavani will not leave for less than his €63m release clause fee, and the 26-year-old is now keen to stress that the club will decide his future.
“This is a good opportunity to tell the world that, when my family speaks, that isn’t Edinson Cavani speaking,” he told Marca as quoted by football-italia.net.
“I’ve asked my family thousands of times to please not talk anymore, because it harms me.
“I belong to Napoli and everything depends on that club. If at some point there is another option, we’ll see.
“What I want to do is sit down face-to-face with the President and decide my future together.”
Cavani has previously stated his desire to sit down and talk with De Laurentiis and has been clear through the entire process that he will leave his future in the hands of the owner.
He reiterated his loyalty to Napoli, while stating that should an option emerge to join a bigger club, then he would first discuss the offer with De Laurentiis.
“Real is one of the best clubs in the world, but there is no deal yet,” he added.
“When we’re kids, we dream about playing at a team like Madrid or Barcelona, but right now I’m at Napoli and I’m very proud to be there.
“If I leave one day, I’ll be ready to move to a bigger club. We’ll see.”
