De Laurentiis talks tough on Cavani

20 July 2012 05:14

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says Edinson Cavani will be left to "rot on the bench" if the forward makes exorbitant wage demands.

Uruguay international Cavani is reportedly one of the most sought-after players in Serie A, with Juventus believed to be particularly keen on taking the striker to Turin.

Consequently, Cavani is said to be seeking a pay rise in order to stay at Napoli, but De Laurentiis insisted he has no intention of being bullied into paying his star man a king's ransom.

"I will let him rot on the bench if he asks for 7-8 million euros in wages," De Laurentiis told TuttoNapoli.net.

De Laurentiis also insisted Marek Hamsik is going nowhere, and accused the key midfielder's agent, Mino Raiola, of trying to unsettle his client.

"For years, he (Raiola) has been trying to take Hamsik away, but the Slovak is like iron and will not move from here," De Laurentiis said.

The need for Napoli to retain Cavani and Hamsik has increased following the high-profile departure of Ezequiel Lavezzi to Paris Saint-Germain.
