Cavani agrees Napoli contract extension

Striker Edinson Cavani has signed a new contract at Napoli - and any club wanting to sign him will have to pay the €63 million figure quoted in his release clause.

Cavani, 25, has put pen to paper on a contract that ties him to the club until 2017, putting an end to a summer of transfer speculation in which he has been linked with a host of clubs including Chelsea and Manchester City.

The new deal was announced at an elaborate press conference at which the Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, a film producer, announced sombrely: "Sometimes, marriages come to an end. Unfortunately, Edi wants to go to England, to the cold city of Manchester. There's a plane ready to take him there."

Cavani replied: "What plane? I am staying at Napoli" before signing the new contract and holding up a shirt with 2017 on the back. He said: "I'm happy here. The club has been good to me, and I wanted to stay."

The Uruguayan joined Napoli from Palermo in 2010, scoring 49 goals in 63 appearances to make him one of the most sought-after players in Europe.
