The Serie A side's owner believes the future of their star striker will be decided when the 26-year-old comes back from the Confederations Cup for pre-season on July 20
Cavani has been heavily linked to Chelsea, Real Madrid, and previously Manchester City, before their initial proposed player-plus-cash deal involving Edin Dzeko stalled, as Goal revealed.

"I don't think Cavani will leave on August 10, when his buyout clause expires," De Laurentiis told Radio Rai.
"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 July 20 we will probably know everything about his future."
Cavani joined Napoli from Palermo in 2010 for £10 million, and has played 52 games for his country, scoring 14 goals.
