The Uruguayan international has been linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs after an impressive season in which he finished top of the Serie A scoring charts with 29 goals.
However, the new Partenopei boss has responded to rumours linking Cavani away from the club by saying that he will only be sold if the club has no option but to sell.
“Neither me nor the president want him to leave as he is a very important player for us” said the Spaniard to Radio Marca.
“There is obviously a clause that we cannot control, but we want him to stay and continue scoring a lot of goals for Napoli.
“If he is to leave the club it will be because of this clause in his contract, Napoli don’t need the money.
“Our intention is for Cavani to remain here as we want to reinforce the squad and make it even more impressive.”
