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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
