Napoli’s owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has said that only Manchester City have formally expressed their interest in striker Edinson Cavani, reports.

De Laurentiis also said that City’s offer for Cavani was far to low and that the Sky Blues are unlikely to come back with an improved offer.

The Italian club are determined to keep the Uruguay international at the club but Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United are all thought to be considering bidding for the prolific striker.

Napoli are demanding £53 million for Cavani and that is proving a stumbling block for interested clubs especially as reports suggest that the striker will demand wages of £300,00 a week at his new club.

Napoli’s owner confirmed that no other team have come forward with an offer.

“The only meeting I’ve had has been with Manchester City, but the offer was inadequate,” he told reporters.

The strikers looks like he will be leaving Napoli this summer but he may have to lower his wage demands if he wants to force a move through.

Real Madrid is thought to be his preferred destination but Los Blancos are currently concentrating on buying Tottenham winger Gareth Bale and if they sign the Welshman they may not be able to sign Cavani as well.
