Edinson Cavani: The striker's buyout clause stands at £53million

Edinson Cavani: The striker's buyout clause stands at £53million

The striker has a reported buyout clause of €63million (£53m) after only agreeing to a contract extension last August.

And so the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, who have both been linked with Cavani, can forget about any cut-price deal to capture the Uruguayan this summer.

Responding on Twitter when asked by a fan about Cavani's situation, De Laurentiis said: "I put a really high cost on it, because I do not want to see it (Cavani leave).

"And I put it (the cost) with the agreement of players."
