Napoli striker Edinson Cavani insists there is "nothing concrete" in place with Real Madrid as he continues to be linked with the Spanish giants, as well as Chelsea and Manchester City.

Cavani has been on Chelsea's radar for some time and is now believed to be their top target after Radamel Falcao joined Monaco, and Borussia Dortmund blocked a move for Robert Lewandowski.

New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing in a world-class striker this summer but looks set to face competition from his former club for the 26-year-old, who has a €63million buy-out clause in his contract.

Reports in Italy in the past 24 hours have suggested Chelsea have stepped up their interest in the Uruguay international, who has admitted that a move to Spain appeals to him.

But Cavani told Corriere dello Sport: "Real Madrid are one of the strongest clubs in the world, but there is nothing concrete.

"At the moment I do not know what my future will hold."

Although his future remains uncertain, Cavani insists he is happy at the Serie A club.

"In Napoli, they trust me. I want to play in a club that gives me confidence," he added.

"I know this is true in Naples, I’m happy to be there."
