The Uruguay international has been continually linked with a move away from the Partenopei, but his current club have no intention of selling himNapoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon has stressed that the Serie A outfit will not sell star striker Edinson Cavani this summer.
The prolific forward has caught the attention of Manchester City and Juventus with his excellent performances for the Partenopei, but Bigon has made it clear that the Uruguayan is not for sale under any circumstances.
"I can confirm that Cavani is not for sale at any price. The president has made it clear to everybody how he feels about a transfer," Bigon was quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport.
"And Edi, too, has been very clear about his intention to stay at Napoli.
"We don't have any meetings scheduled [to discuss his future]. There's no need to talk about it. We have a very close relation with Edinson."
Roberto Mancini is thought to be extremely interested in the 2011 Copa America winner, as well as Colombia hitman Radamel Falcao.
