Bookmakers: Cavani does not think he’s worth €63 million

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani – a rising star in the sport and a huge favourite with many bookmakers – questioned whether he is worth the club’s asking price of €63 million.
Sports bookmaker services saw that in 34 appearances, the forward scored 29 league goals as last term the Italian side finished second in Serie A , which confirmed his status as one of the biggest talents in European football.
Clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid were then linked with a move for the Uruguay international, but bookmakers learned that Aurelio De Laurentiis, Napoli president, was eager to stress that such clubs must be able to meet Cavani’s buy-out clause.
But Cavani now hinted that he would like to leave Napoli if the right club comes along, and the player, as well as many bookmakers, hope that potential suitors won’t be put off by his but price tag.
He told Marca: “I don’t think I’m worth €63m. I will talk to De Laurentiis about it. I owe a lot to Napoli and I want to leave through the front door if I move on.
“I am feeling very good at Napoli, but it all depends on the club. We will have to wait and see what options I have. What I want to do is sit down face to face with the club president and decide my future together.
“Real are one of the best clubs in the world, but there is no deal yet. When you’re a kid, you dream about playing at a team like Madrid or Barcelona, but right now I’m at Napoli and I’m very proud to be there.
“If I leave one day, I’ll be ready to move to a bigger club. We’ll see.”
