Man City interest in Cavani confirmed

Napoli coach Angelo Gregucci has confirmed Manchester City are interested in Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani. The Citizens are long term admirers of the forward.

"I don't know if the club will lay siege to Napoli for Cavani, but every club with a player of the highest level will know they'll be courted by bigger clubs," Gregucci said.

"Mancini decides the transfer targets along with the new directors. If you ask the clubs who can afford Cavani, for example Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, then I think they'd want Cavani just as Manchester City want him.

"However, what the player wants is the predominant factor in negotiations and it seems to me that Cavani is happy at Napoli."
