Napoli's star striker Edinson Cavani is in talks with Real Madrid and Manchester City, according to his mother.

The Uruguay international is one of the most sought-after forwards in the world and is also thought to be wanted by Chelsea. But it would appear Real and City are leading the race for Cavani as they aim to activate his reported €53million buyout clause.

"Edi is dealing with Real Madrid and City," said Cavani's mother, Berta Gomez, in a radio interview in Montevideo, Uruguay.

She added: "In two or three weeks, we will know their fate and be able to say more. In any case, I assure you Edinson loves Naples and, if he goes, he will never forget the love and affection of the people."

The Uruguay international is among the most sought-after frontmen in European football - having taken in productive spells in Serie A with Palermo and Napoli. He has become accustomed to fending off endless rounds of gossip, with each passing window bringing fresh reports of big-money bids.

Cavani insists he is paying no attention to the latest rumours, with his focus locked on events at Napoli until told otherwise. He told Ovacion Digital: "Real Madrid, Chelsea and (Manchester) City are interested in me? I just think about Napoli.

"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."
