Uruguay’s Edinson Cavani ended Uruguay’s Confederations Cup campaign in style despite losing in a penalty shootout with Italy to decide third place.
Cavani demonstrated why he has a £54 million buy-out clause in his contract with Napoli scoring twice for his country the first a one-time touch and the second a brilliant free kick from Long-range that found the back of the net.
There was talk that the striker had agreed terms with Chelsea over the weekend, yet Cavani is making no comments on whether or not a deal has been done.
Most people had assumed that the 26-year-old would be going to Real Madrid, but everyone knows both Chelsea and Manchester City are also interested in the striker.
After the match he told Italian RAI TV: “Everything I say at the moment could be misunderstood, so I prefer not to talk about the future.
“I’m going on holiday with my family and then I will come back to Italy to consider the whole situation.”
He then added: “Despite our loss after penalties against Italy, it has been a positive tournament for Uruguay.”
