Napoli to tie down Cavani

Napoli plan to adjust Edinson Cavani's contract in order to keep their star player happy amid interest from big clubs in Spain and England.

The 24-year-old Uruguay international has been a revelation in his first season at Napoli and broke a club record after scoring 26 goals in Serie A.

Cavani is contracted to Napoli until 2015 and currently earns €1.8m a season.

However, the player's agent Claudio Anellucci feels his client's achievements at the San Paolo deserve greater recognition.

He has asked for an extension until 2016 with an annual salary worth €3m.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis will barter that figure down, but an agreement will be reached.

He has recommended that a buy-out clause worth at least €50m be inserted into the new contract.
