Hope for Blues and Man City in race for Napoli forward.
Chelsea and Manchester City target Edinson Cavani says he doesn’t know if Spanish football will suit him after being linked with a move to Real Madrid.
The Napoli striker, 26, is one of the most wanted players in Europe after bagging 36 goals in 43 appearances this season.
Chelsea are thought to have opened negotiations with Napoli for the Uruguay international, while City are reportedly keen to strike a swap deal involving Edin Dzeko.
And in a major boost to the Premier League duo, Cavani has admitted he is not sure if La Liga will suit his style of play, after Real emerged as serious challengers for his signature.
“I don’t know if Spanish football suits me,” Cavani is quoted as saying by the Sport Review.
“Football there is wonderful as everyone knows, you have more freedom, but I don’t know what will happen.”
Earlier this week, Cavani admitted he would like to work with Chelsea’s new boss Jose Mourinho.
“It would be a pleasure to be managed by someone like him [Mourinho],” Cavani told Sky Sports.
“Chelsea? I don’t know if they’ve made an offer for me but I know that working for a coach like Pellegrini or Mourinho would be a great pleasure.
“It would certainly be a great honour to join one of the illustrious teams that are looking at me because I dreamed about doing that as a child. At the moment, though, I am only focused on Uruguay.”
