Napolo president Aurelio De Laurentiis says Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is free to leave for €70 million (via Daily Mail).
Cavani, 26, has scored 28 goals in all competitions this season. He joined Napoli from Palermo in 2010 and his contract reportedly has a release clause of €63 million.
De Laurentiis said Napoli want more than that to cover the tax burden from a sale.
Said De Laurentiis: "We included a very high buy-out clause in his contract because we want him to stay at Napoli. The clause exists, though, and if some nutter is willing to pay €70m for him, which would mean a net fee of €63m for Napoli, we are ready to listen to the offer."
Manchester City are thought to be interested.
Meanwhile, De Laurentiis also spoke about Sampdoria forward Mauro Icardi, saying Napoli would only sign the 20-year-old starlet if they could guarantee a first-team place (via Football Italia).
