Cavani leaves door open for big-money summer move from Napoli

The Uruguay striker believes a departure from Partenopei has not yet been ruled out, despite his club previously insisting he will not be sold at any price

Edinson Cavani has given Manchester City a glimmer of hope in the race for his signature after his latest admission that he will discuss his future with Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon.

The 25-year-old had been linked to a number of clubs, including the English champions as well as Serie A winners Juventus, but the Partenopei initially refused to be drawn into the prospect of selling the prolific hitman.

However, the Napoli striker has not ruled out a big-money move this summer, telling Uruguayan website Subraydo: "This is football, I think the [Napoli] president [Aurelio De Laurentiis] is a little... likes to play with the numbers.

“I think that regardless of whether an offer will come in or not, the chance to sit down and talk will come and he will do that calmly.

“He will use his head, he is a very good businessman and it will all be worked out.”

Cavani has four years left on his contract after joining Napoli from Serie A rivals Palermo in 2010, and it is expected that Manchester City will make an offer for the striker during the transfer window.
