Napoli president De Laurentiis hints at Lavezzi exit

The Partenopei chief conceded that the striker will leave if his buyout clause is met and noted that the Argentine's stint with the team has been very positive.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has said that the club may be unable to stop Ezequiel Lavezzi from leaving in the summer.

The Argentine striker has been strongly linked with a move away from the San Paolo, with Inter and Paris Saint-Germain both interested in the 27-year-old.

His tears on Sunday evening, following Napoli's 2-0 victory against Juventus in the Coppa Italia final, may suggest that this was his last match for the club, and De Laurentiis does not rule out a summer transfer for the player.

"He is 27, we will let him decide his fate," he told reporters. "He has a buyout clause, if anyone meets this figure, he will go.

"These five years with him have been very good and they will not be erased from the memory."

According to reports, Lavezzi's release clause is set at 31 million euros, with his contract due to expire in 2015.
