Napoli's Edinson Cavani: Real Madrid are a club I have always wanted to play for

Cavani in dreamland at Napoli but hopes in the future he will be able to test himself with one of Europe's most famous clubs.

Napoli forward Edinson Cavani has declared he is currently living the dream in Naples but has admitted he would love to test himself at a club of the stature of Real Madrid.

The Uruguayan striker has steered Napoli to second in Serie A with 25 league goals to his name, and despite Sunday's defeat to Udinese, the San Paolo men are still in the hunt for the Scudetto.

He admitted that one day he would like to score goals for the Spanish giants, however, and was quoted as saying on the official Copa America 2011 website, "I want everything to continue the way it’s going now.

“I am living a real dream with Napoli. Regarding my future, I have always adored a challenge. There is a club I would particularly like to play for and that is Real Madrid. My blood pulses to wear the white jersey or that of a similarly important side.

“For now my desire is to continue playing at this level,” said the 24-year-old.
