Agent quashes Cavani talk

The 24-year-old has come off the back of a spectacular first

campaign with Napoli following three seasons with Serie A rivals

Palermo. Cavani recently extended his stay at Napoli by an

additional five years, although that has not quelled the

speculation surrounding his future. The Premier League champions

have been tipped to join the race for his signature along with

rivals Manchester City, but agent Claudio Anelucci insists all the

talk involving the Red Devils has no substance. “This is the time

of year when it is normal to hear talk of transfers to big clubs

for astronomical fees,” Anelucci told Radio Sportiva. “The majority

of the time there is nothing to them, as is the case with regards

to a possible move to Manchester United for Edinson.”
