But he is in discussions with Man City and Real Madrid.
Edinson Cavani’s mother, Berta Gomez, has confirmed that her son is not in talks with Chelsea but is negotiating with Manchester City and Real Madrid over a summer move, talkSPORT reports.
The Napoli striker has become one of the most sought after players in Europe this season after another fine campaign in Serie A and he has attracted interest from all corners of the continent.
And the Player’s mother took to Uruguayan radio to confirm that his release clause with the Italian side is set at £53.9 million and that he is not in talks with the west London side but is currently decided between Real Madrid and Manchester City instead.
“Edi is in talks with Manchester City and Real Madrid,” Gomez told a radio station in Montevideo, the Gazzetta dello Sport has reported.
“The Napoli president [Aurelio De Laurentiis] talked about the possibility of negotiating with Chelsea, but at the moment there is nothing concrete. In 15 or 20 days we will know more and be able to say something.
“I assure you that however it goes, he loves Naples and if he leaves he would never forget the love and affection of the people there.”
