Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis anticipates a decision on the future of Edinson Cavani before the striker returns to Italy at the end of July.

The Chelsea and Real Madrid target has been connected with a summer move and was also linked to Manchester City before they decided not to meet his €63million (£54m) buyout clause.

That clause in Cavani's contract expires on 10th August, which has led to speculation he could wait until then to leave Napoli in order to secure a better deal for any future club.

Rafa relaxed over Cavani future

But De Laurentiis thinks the Uruguay international, who is currently in Brazil at the Confederations Cup, will decide his future before he returns from a summer break on 20th July.

De Laurentiis told Radio Rai: "I don't think Cavani will leave on 10th August, when his buyout clause expires.

"I'm confident in him, because I consider him a real man. He won't make me a joke of me.

"Should Cavani want to leave, he will decide it after a long period of reflection.

"But by 20th July we will probably know everything about his future."
