Manchester City & Chelsea target Cavani: Napoli situation is delicate

The forward was evasive over questions regarding his future and insists he hopes to sort everything out after the conclusion of the Confederations Cup
Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has described his summer situation as "delicate" as the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid continue to be linked with a move for the Uruguayan.

With San Paolo president Aurelio De Laurentiis refusing to budge on the forward's €63 million [£53.8m] contractual release clause price-tag, however, Cavani has been left frustrated but he is hoping to resolve everything with talks in July.

De Laurentiis previously revealed that City refused to pay the buyout clause after Goal exclusively revealed the Premier League runners-up failed with a player-plus-cash offer including Edin Dzeko.

"Today the only thing I can think about is that I have a contract with Napoli. For now, Napoli are my club," he told Globo Esporte. "It is useless to talk about my future. I, the main protagonist in this transfer story, do not know anything.

"I just know that I'm at Napoli still and I have to go back there. I think once I have finished the Confederations Cup, I will have a few days of rest and then sort things out. I will return to Napoli and face the situation.

"It's a delicate situation without doubt. But these things I do not want to speak about in front of a camera."

Cavani, 26, has a contract with the Naples-based club until June 2017.
