Cavani has time deadline for Real Madrid transfer

Posted on June 23, 2013 by admin

Edinson Cavani is reported to be one of the main targets for Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, and it seems like the Uruguayan striker would prefer to come to the Santiago Bernabeu to play in La Liga, although Chelsea and Manchester City also want him in the English Premier League.

It is hardly surprising that his transfer is not a simple matter, though, because of the massive release clause of over £50 million in his contract with Napoli. That clause expires early in August, but that could actually mean that it is harder to sign him, because the Serie A club would not have to accept any offer.

Realistically though, Madrid will be trying to persuade Napoli to accept less for their star striker, especially after his poor performances at the Confederations Cup in Brazil. His club president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, however, is a shrewd operator and is pushing for a quick resolution to the deal, while suggesting that if the deal is not done soon, it may not get done at all.

I suppose that a lot will depend on the wishes of Carlo Ancelotti when he takes over, but I am sure he would like to get his transfers done as quickly as possible as well.
