Edinson Cavani: Will leave Napoli if the release clause is met

Cavani reportedly said that he wanted to meet with officials from Napoli to discuss his future after Uruguay's 2-1 defeat by Brazil in the Confederations Cup.

But De Laurentiis has said that there is no need to talk at the current time.

Speaking to the press before the Italian league meeting, De Laurentiis said: "There is no need to have a face to face with Cavani.

"If a club offers €63million, then we would allow him to leave. The release clause will have been activated.

"It's not fair that Cavani has distractions while he is playing in an important tournament like the Confederations Cup.

"Should we receive an offer, then fine. If this offer doesn't arrive, then Cavani will stay in Italy with us."

De Laurentiis did confirm, though, that the only side he had discussed Cavani with was Manchester City.

He added: "The only meeting I've had has been with Manchester City, but the offer was inadequate."
