Cavani uncertain of his future

Edinson Cavani has admitted his future at Napoli is uncertain, with talks over a move from Stadio San Paolo set to escalate.
After 36 goals in 41 appearances for Napoli this season, the striker is thought to be at the top of Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea's shopping lists for the off-season.

And Cavani has fuelled rumours of a move from the Serie A, admitting he is in talks that have left him doubtful over a long-term stay at Napoli.

However, with his current focus on a FIFA Confederation Cup campaign with Uruguay, Cavani is doing his utmost to put thoughts of a potential money-spinning transfer to the back of his mind.

He told OMNISPORT: "Today I have a contract with Napoli, but on the other hand there are some conversations (going on) and now things are a bit dynamic but everything is uncertain at the moment. 

"What I know is that I belong to Napoli that I'm thinking about my national team because we have a very difficult qualifying game (away to Venezuela) and we also have a difficult tournament (Confederations Cup) to deal with.

"After all these commitments I'll think about what is going to happen."

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has claimed to be in discussions with Chelsea over a deal for the Uruguay international, having missed out on Monaco new-boy Radamel Falcao, but Cavani insists he is unaware whether an official move has been made, and he will be unconcerned about rumours until that changes.

"I don't know if they (Chelsea) have made an offer for me," he continued. 

"I am quiet because throughout my career I have had to deal with it (rumours) that I have signed for another team when there wasn't any truth about that. 

"People have talked about a lot of money, a sale (permanent transfer), a loan. I am used to that. To be honest, I am thinking about now. 

"There are more things than football and sometimes we have to be focused on that. I have to have my feet on the ground. I am happy and quiet. We will see everything when happens."

With Stamford Bridge and the Etihad Stadium seemingly the most likely destinations for Cavani, he did admit that it would be a pleasure to work under either Jose Mourinho, who has returned to Chelsea, or Manuel Pellegrini, who is set to be the next Manchester City boss.

"I know that to be trained by managers of that level as Pellegrini and many others that people named like Mourinho, it would always be a pleasure to be trained by any of these (managers)," he added.

"Of course, at a certain point it would be a pleasure to play in one of those teams, because when I was a child I always imagine doing it, but for now I only pay attention to Uruguay."
