Edinson Cavani has a 50/50 chance of joining Real Madrid in the summer, according to the Napoli forward’s father.

The Uruguay forward has been heavily linked with a move away from the Serie A side in recent months, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all reported to be interested in signing the striker.

But the player’s father has suggested that his son is most likely to join La Liga giants Real Madrid and claims that the 26-year-old has turned down “many teams”.

“Napoli has rejected offers from many teams,” Luis Cavani told Marca. “But I think that they’d sell him for an offer of €60m (£51m).

“There is a 50 per cent possibility he will sign for Real Madrid, but the negotiation with Napoli is difficult.”

The 26-year-old forward has scored an impressive 20 goals in 26 Serie A appearances this season.
