Etihad side reaffirm their interest in Uruguayan striker.
Manchester City are continuing to monitor the availability of Napoli’s Edinson Cavani according to Sky Sports.

Napoli are keen to hold on to the player but may find themselves powerless to keep him as the club’s President acknowledged the existence of a £60 million release clause in the player’s contract.
The likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Chelsea are all thought to be ready to make a mega bucks move for the striker.
City boss Roberto Mancini is keen to bring in attacking reinforcements to the club as he looks to revitalise his side who have surrendered a 15 point lead to Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table.
The club sold striker Mario Balotelli to AC Milan during the January transfer window and he looks set to be followed out of the Etihad exit door by Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko.
