thumbnail Hello,

The striker's dad insists his son is happy in Naples but remains open to a move away from the Stadio San Paolo, with the forward himself keen to avoid speculation

The father of Napoli star Edinson Cavani has revealed the striker is likely to move to Spain this summer - if he decides to leave the club in the transfer window.

The Uruguay international has been linked with a move to Manchester City but comments from his family seem to suggest that the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are more realistic options.

"Edinson is very happy in Italy and I am not saying that to make the fans or directors happy. It is the truth," Luis Cavani told Ovacion Digital.

"This is his career and about business, though. If he does leave Italy, then I think his future will be in Spain."

Cavani himself, however, was not in a speculative mood and instead preferred to look ahead to the summer, with the Confederations Cup in mid-June to look forward to.

"During my career people have linked me with numerous clubs, but until there is a signature nothing is for sure," he said.

"Right now my only thought is for Napoli. I want to have a few days off before going on international duty. I want to continue working and improving, as in life one must always keep learning new things."

Cavani's goals helped to propel the Partenopei to second place in Serie A this season, securing a group stage spot in the 2013-14 Champions League.
