Cavani wants to respect Napoli contract, says agent

The Uruguayan's representative played down the striker's remarks, but could not guaranteed that his client will remain at the club beyond the end of the season
Edinson Cavani is not thinking about leaving Napoli at the end of the season, his agent has declared.

The Uruguay international was cryptic about his long-term future at the San Paolo on the weekend and did not rule out a transfer if the club fails to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"I do not want to answer to the question about whether Cavani will stay or go," Claudio Anellucci told Canale 34.

"Edinson answered that Saturday and he was very clear, but everyone can interpret what he said the way they want.

"For every player it is important to have the team's future very clear, but financial matters are also important. Napoli have a serious project and any player would like to be part of it. Cavani has a contract and he wants to respect it."

Cavani, who is tied to the Partenopei until 2016, has scored 29 goals in all competitions in 2011-12.

Napoli is fifth in the Serie A table, four points adrift of third-placed Lazio, and will visit Lecce on Wednesday in its upcoming league contest.
