Serie A goal machine touted for possible Bernabeu move by his father.
Real Madrid is apparently the perfect place for Napoli forward Edinson Cavani to continue his upward progress, according to his father Luis.
The in-form Uruguayan is once again the subject of ever growing transfer speculation linking him with a move away from the San Paolo, having scored 16 goals in 16 matches thus far this season.
According to talkSPORT Man City are one of those sides leading the race to snap up the £50m rated marksman but comments from the player’s dad may lead to a Bernabeu switch.
He told Marca TV: “It would be the perfect team for my son. Besides, we are always watching Real Madrid.
“They are a team who, in every game, create 10 chances and that would be the perfect situation for Edi.”
Real Madrid may well feel the need to strengthen their attack having fallen a huge distance behind La Liga leaders Barcelona.
Jose Mourinho relies very heavily on Cristiano Ronaldo to carry the goal-scoring burden and could feel the Spanish giants could do with a more prolific forward spearheading the Real Madrid attack.
