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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
