Cavani keen to respect contract - agent

Edinson Cavani's agent has stressed the Uruguay international intends to honour his Napoli contract in spite of ongoing links with Manchester City.

City boss Roberto Mancini is an admirer of Cavani's talent, and in January it was suggested the Italian was weighing up a big-money move for the striker.

With the summer transfer window on the horizon, speculation has again renewed over Cavani's future, although his representative has stressed he is currently committed to his contract at Napoli which expires in 2016.

"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, 25, was quizzed about his future at the weekend, with the forward asked whether he would remain at fifth-placed Napoli even if they missed out on Champions League qualification.

He said: "I don't know, the club will deal with this sort of thing. I am focused only on playing my football and winning every game. The club will think about the rest and they know what to do."
