Edison Cavani: ‘I’m not sure Spanish football is good for me’


Napoli forward Edison Cavani confessed in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport that he is ‘not sure that Spanish football is adequate’ for him, when asked about his possible transfer to Real Madrid.

“Everybody knows that La Liga is marvellous and there are more spaces for strikers, but I don’t know where I will end up”, he said.

The Uruguayan international spoke about his current situation at Napoli after Rafael Benitez has become the new manager: “I don’t know if Benitez’s arrival will affect my future. I have a running contract with Napoli, but at the same time I speak with other clubs”.

“At the moment I’m a Napoli player and I am focussed on the World Cup qualifying matches and the Confederations Cup. After that, I will think about what to do. Napoli has made me grow, but I want to grow even more”, he admitted.

‘It would be a pleassure to be coached by Mourinho or Pellegrini’

Cavani also confessed he would be keen on a Premier League move when asked about the interest of Chelsea and Manchester City: “I don’t know if Chelsea have 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’ve dreamed about doing that since I was a child. However, at the moment I am only focused on Uruguay”, he concluded.
