ADL: Cavani could return, if...

Aurelio De Laurentiis reveals Edinson Cavani could return to Napoli ‘if he doesn’t want to play for Paris Saint-Germain anymore and lowers his demands.’

Cavani scored over 100 goals in just three seasons with Napoli before joining PSG in 2013, although the striker has never ruled out a second spell at the San Paolo.

“You must be crazy not to be happy at Napoli,” De Laurentiis told Le Parisien ahead of the two clubs’ Champions League clash on Wednesday.

“At home, I have the most beautiful view of Rome, but I would always change it for a view of Naples, just like my home in Los Angeles.

“These lads only have to wake up, go and train and that’s it. We pay them for fun. Afterwards, they have the freedom to live idyllically.

“Imagine waking up in Liverpool? You only have the Beatles’ house, Abbey Road... There are many things in Paris, but the weather isn’t as exceptional as it is in Naples.

“Is that a message for Cavani? It only depends on him. Our doors are always open to him.

“I’m not Qatari so if he doesn’t want to play for PSG anymore and lowers his demands, we’ll find an agreement with the French club.

“No-one wants to keep an player of his quality when they’re unhappy. He’s not 24 anymore, but it’s almost impossible for him to get hurt. He’s elastic and he can play until he’s 38.”

The President was then asked whether the French giants tried to sign other Partenopei stars and about his reported interest in Alphonse Areola.

“No they didn’t,” he continued.

“Areola? Yes, I wanted him. I spoke to his agent, Mino Raiola, but he had other ideas for him. I’m very happy with the three goalkeepers we have.

“I’ve never had three goalkeepers a sgood as Meret, Ospina and Karnezis. They have talent and character.”
