Edinson Cavani is keen to work with Chelsea new manager Jose Mourinho after the striker admitted he will quit Napoli for another club this summer.
The Uruguayan striker is a top target for both Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City. Cavani is top class player in Serie A scoring 29 goals for Napoli this season. His goal scoring form has urged European clubs to fight for the signature of the deadly striker this summer.
But the striker has signaled he would love to join Chelsea and work under ‘The Special One’ and be a part of a new Chelsea era.
Talking with Sky Sports News he said: “The Special One? It would be a pleasure to be managed by someone like him.
‘Chelsea? I don’t know if they’ve made an offer for me but I know that working for a coach like Pellegrini or Mourinho would be a great pleasure.
‘It would certainly be a great honour to join one of the illustrious teams that are looking at me because I dreamed about doing that as a child.
‘At the moment, though, I am only focused on Uruguay.’
(When asked if he wants to work with Rafa Benitez) he said: ‘I don’t know if Benitez’s arrival could affect my future. ‘Today I have a contract with Napoli but, at the same time, I’m talking to other teams.
‘Things are bit uncertain at the moment. The only certain thing is that I belong to Napoli and I’m concentrating on Uruguay because we have a tough tournament like the Confederations Cup.
‘After these engagements I will think about my future.
‘I’m relaxed at the moment because I’ve endured rumours about having signed for other teams throughout my career, when it hasn’t been true.
‘People talk about big sums of money, about sales, about loan moves, and I’m used to it. I know that people like talking about big numbers but I have to stay honest and focus on the present.
‘There are other things than football. I’m staying down to earth, happy, and relaxed and we will see what happens.’
