It has been reported that Napoli are confident Edinson Cavani’s buy-out clause will prevent the striker from leaving over the summer.
A £54.5m buy-out clause has been inserted in his contract, pricing most clubs out of the market.
However president Aurelio De Laurentiis is optimistic regarding the club’s chances of retaining the Uruguayan’s striker’s services for the foreseeable future.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “The clause of €63million? No-one has paid it.
“Last summer I refused €55m and Real Madrid didn’t even get to 50.
“If someone meets it then there is nothing I can do, but I would do everything to convince the player to stay because it takes an agreement with him too.
“The last thing I am thinking about is depriving myself of Cavani. I like him as a player and as a man.”
