Chelsea transfers: I’m not worth €63m, insists Edinson Cavani
Chelsea transfers: Napoli striker Edinson Cavani feels he isn't worth his €63m (£54.5m) asking price
Edinson Cavani believes he isn’t worth Napoli’s asking price of €63m (£54.5m) amid interest from Chelsea and Real Madrid.
The Uruguay international is expected to leave the Seria A runners-up this summer after scoring 29 top-flight goals in 34 appearances last season.
But Cavani wants to hold discussions with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis about his price tag, insisting he wants to leave the club on good terms.
“I don’t think I’m worth €63m. I will have to talk to De Laurentiis about it. I owe a lot to Napoli and I want to leave through the front door if I move on,” Cavani said.
“I am feeling very good at Napoli, but it all depends on the club. We will have to wait and see what options I have. What I want to do is sit down face-to-face with the club president and decide my future together.”
Meanwhile, Cavani also revealed there is no deal in place with Madrid despite admitting he would be interested in joining his dream club
“Real are one of the best clubs in the world, but there is no deal yet. When you’re a kid, you dream about playing at a team like Madrid or Barcelona, but right now I’m at Napoli and I’m very proud to be there,” he added.
“If I leave one day, I’ll be ready to move to a bigger club. We’ll see.”
