Cavani laughs off Juve links

Edinson Cavani laughed off reports linking him with Juventus. “The Coppa Italia is simply the start for Napoli. I know how the media game goes.”

The striker was decisive in their campaign, which saw them lift their first piece of silverware for 22 years.

Ezequiel Lavezzi appears to be on his way out of the San Paolo and it was rumoured Cavani would follow with the likes of Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester City showing an interest.

“The Coppa Italia is simply the start for Napoli so that we can do even better next year,” he told the Corriere dello Sport.

“I read the stories about me and the transfer market, but I know how the media game goes. It’s part of the sport and of my job, but I don’t listen to the rumours, nor do they annoy me.

“Besides, when I am on vacation I dedicate myself to my family and try to recharge my batteries so I can keep giving great moments of joy to the Napoli fans.”
