But PSG star, 31, is reluctant to ask the French champions for a move

Edinson Cavani is reportedly keen on a move to Real Madrid.

AS claim that the Paris Saint-Germain striker sees the Bernabeu as his “dream” destination – but is reluctant to agitate for it.

Real are weighing up transfer targets to bolster their attack after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for £99million.

But Cavani’s strong relationship with PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi means the Uruguayan does not want to ask for the move.

He is contracted in the French capital until 2020 and is popular with PSG fans.

At 31, Cavani is entering the final stage of his career and is said to see playing for Real as the perfect way to see it out as a top-level striker.

Any deal would most likely be done with goodwill from the French champions given the strength of their relationship with Real.

The reigning European champions have issued two separate statements over the past month distancing themselves from moves for PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

PSG paid £55m to land Cavani from Napoli in 2013 and would be expected to want around £90m if he was to move now.

But AS state that his wages could be an issue.

He earns around £205,000 a week and can pick up an extra £1.75m in bonuses each season.
