Cavani bemoans parents´ comments

26 June 2013 10:04

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has expressed frustration over recent comments from his parents regarding his uncertain future.

The 26-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from the Stadio San Paolo, with Spanish giants Real Madrid thought to be keen on his services.

And the Uruguay international's father further fuelled speculation by declaring that his son would be keen on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Cavani has insisted that he has received no contact from Real and remains a Napoli player.

He told La Repubblica: "My father has talked about Real? I want to point out that these words are not coming from me.

"I've asked my parents a thousand times not to say any more. They can only hurt me. I belong to Napoli as it stands and that depends on the club. If another option presents itself, we will evaluate it.

"I will make myself clear on this point too - I've always said they (Real Madrid) are one of the best clubs in the world."

Meanwhile, Napoli boss Rafael Benitez has insisted that the Italian club have no desire to allow Cavani to depart for less than his €63 million release clause.

"Neither me nor the president want Cavani to leave because he's a really important player for us," he told Marca.

"Clearly, there is a clause that you can't control, but we want him to stay to score many goals and to continue growing with Napoli. He found success and fame with this team and he can stay for another year with supporters who love him.

"Napoli don't need the money. Should he leave, it will be for his clause, and it's a really high sum. But our intention is that he will stay. The president's intention is to strengthen the team and Cavani is our most important player.

"I don't know if he has had any offers, but I know there is a clause and anyone who wants him will have to pay it."
