Aurelio De Laurentiis has closed the door on a Napoli return for Edinson Cavani. “I haven’t signed him and won’t sign him.”

Cavani had been increasingly linked with a move back to Napoli, where he scored over 100 goals in three seasons, but De Laurentiis put a stop to the speculation, while opening up on the Partenopei’s search for a right-back.

“Cavani? I haven’t signed him and won’t sign him,” the President told Radio Kiss Kiss.

De Laurentiis Jr hopes for Cavani

Luigi De Laurentiis, son of Napoli President Aurelio, would like to see Edinson Cavani return - “he was a great hero for us”.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been linked with a return to the Stadio San Paolo, but he’d have to take a significant wage cut to make it happen.

“As a fan, who wouldn’t want to see Cavani back at Napoli?” asked De Laurentiis Jr in an interview with Corriere dello Sport.

Cavani return to Serie A?

Edinson Cavani is increasingly likely to leave PSG and return to Italy, with Napoli and Juventus the favourites.

The Uruguay international impressed at the World Cup and was sorely missed due to injury when they lost to France.

According to Catalan paper Sport, Neymar has asked Paris Saint-Germain to get rid of Cavani and make an offer for his old Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez.

It is absolutely no secret that Cavani and Neymar do not get along, both on and off the field, so it’s hardly a surprise their biggest buy would make such a request.
