Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has played down talk linking him with a move away from the San Paolo this summer, Sky Sports reports.

Rumours of possible destinations for the Uruguayan hitman have been flying since the turn of the year with the likes on Manchester City, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid all said to be interested in his signature.

Over the past few months he has become adept at deflecting the constant speculation after becoming one of football’s hottest properties. However, he is now choosing to ignore the stories and remain focussed on Napoli until he is told by club officials that he is no longer wanted.

“Real Madrid, Chelsea and (Manchester) City are interested in me? I just think about Napoli,” he said.

“If an important offer were to come in, I will talk with president (Aurelio) De Laurentiis.

“I’m fine in Italy, I have grown as a man there and as a player with the Serie A experience.”

The 26-year-old first moved to Palermo in Italy in 2006. After four successful seasons in Sicily he joined Napoli in 2010 where he has gone on to bag an impressive 104 goals in 138 appearances. He has been instrumental in Napoli’s second place finish behind Juventus this term.
