Edinson Cavani: The striker is expected to move this summer and has also been li

The Chelsea and Real Madrid target has been connected with a summer move and was also linked to Manchester City before they decided not to meet his €63million (£54m) buyout clause.

That clause in Cavani's contract expires on 10th August, which has led to speculation he could wait until then to leave Napoli in order to secure a better deal for any future club.

But De Laurentiis thinks the Uruguay international, who is currently in Brazil at the Confederations Cup, will decide his future before he returns from a summer break on 20th July.

De Laurentiis told Radio Rai: "I don't think Cavani will leave on 10th August, when his buyout clause expires.

"I'm confident in him, because I consider him a real man. He won't make me a joke of me.

"Should Cavani want to leave, he will decide it after a long period of reflection.

"But by 20th July we will probably know everything about his future."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
