Edinson Cavani: Going nowhere according to Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon
Napoli have insisted that Edinson Cavani is not for sale and does not want to leave the club.
The Uruguayan striker has been linked to several of Europe's leading clubs, including Inter Milan, Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris St Germain.
Juventus are the latest club to be interested in Cavani, having reportedly made an offer for the player who is under contract until June 2015.
The 25-year-old enjoyed an excellent 2011/12 season, with his 23 goals helping Napoli secure fifth place in Serie A, but the club's sporting director Riccardo Bigon says his star forward will not be leaving.
"Cavani is not for sale and he doesn't want to move from Naples," he told Corriere dello Sport.
"I reiterate that Cavani will remain at Napoli."
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini recently distanced himself from talk of a move for Cavani, who scored three goals over the course of Napoli's two meetings with City in last season's Champions League.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has already slapped a €100million (£80m) price tag on Cavani.
