Cavani: Normal To Dream Of Madrid

Napoli star Edinson Cavani has refused to be drawn on talk about his future, but admits that it is normal to dream of playing for Real Madrid.

The Uruguay international has been linked with a move away from San Paolo this summer and has been linked with moves to Spain or England,.

The 26-year-old scored 29 goals in 34 games last season as he finished as the top scorer in Serie A and helped his club to secure second place.

The player previously admitted that he would fulfil a childhood dream by signing with Madrid and has dropped the hint once again.

"Is Napoli my future? Napoli is my today," the former Palermo man told Corriere del Mezzogiorno.

"No one can predict the future. I can only say that today I am happy.

"As for Real Madrid... kids dream, it is normal. Everyone does it. Then life is another thing. I found Napoli and I am proud. Then again it's nice to dream, even when you are grown up.

"For now I am a Napoli player, I am not aware of other offers."
