Napoli would refuse €50m for Cavani

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis claims he would turn down a bid worth €50m for in-form striker Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguay international scored his second hat-trick of the season for Napoli against Juventus last night, taking his tally for the 2010-11 campaign to 20 goals.

Cavani's purple patch has seen Napoli rise to second place in Serie A with just a four-point gap separating them from League leaders Milan.

Asked about his star player, De Laurentiis said: "I wouldn't even sell him for €50m.

"I would say 'no' if Manchester City wanted him."
