Edinson Cavani: Expected to move this summer

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis anticipates a decision on the future of Edinson Cavani before he returns to Italy at the end of July.

Chelsea and Real Madrid have both been linked with a summer move, while Manchester City have decided not to meet his €63million (£54million) buyout clause.

That clause in Cavani's contract expires on August 10, 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 July 20.

De Laurentiis told Radio Rai: "I don't think Cavani will leave on August 10, 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 July 20 we will probably know everything about his future."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
