Cavani content with Napoli stay

Striker could stay until 2017 unless club meets €60million buy-out

Edinson Cavani: Happy to have signed a new deal at Napoli

Edinson Cavani's agent insists his client is happy at Napoli after signing a new deal and claims only a "crazy" offer will see him leave.

Cavani was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer with Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly interested.

There were also suggestions Cavani could move to Juventus to ensure his involvement in UEFA Champions League football this season.

But the 25-year-old Uruguay international instead extended his contract with Napoli until 2017 and agent Pierpaolo Triulzi is happy with the deal.

"Napoli are a leading club and they made an important effort to get the deal," Triulzi told Radio Crc.

"For Cavani's and our part there has always been the desire to continue along this path with Napoli and we'll do it for another five years.


"We found an agreement that makes us happy, the player and Napoli."

There is now a buy-out clause of €60million (£48m) in Cavani's contract and his agent is adamant that the forward will not be following Ezequiel Lavezzi out of Naples.

Lavezzi joined Paris St Germain in a €31m (£25m) deal this summer but Triulzi insists this is a very different situation.

He added: "A buy-out clause like Lavezzi? These are different situations. That was a compromise. This is a price that requires a crazy expense from another club."

Asked if such an offer came in from the likes of Manchester City or Chelsea in the summer, Triulzi said: "The summer was long. I don't remember them."
