Napoli set €70m Cavani price-tag

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has opened the door to Juventus for Edinson Cavani, but only “if they bring me €70m in cash.”

The Bianconeri have long been linked with the Uruguayan international as the ‘top player’ they need in attack for next season.

Tuttosport continue to maintain the deal can be done for €40m, but De Laurentiis warned that’s not going to happen.

“People say I intend to sell Cavani. Of course, if they bring me at least €70m in cash,” smiled the Hollywood mogul.

Napoli are in negotiations to extend Cavani’s contract until 2016 with wages worth over €4m per season plus performance-related bonuses.

Although Ezequiel Lavezzi has not yet been sold to PSG, a €27m transfer is expected to go through next week.
