Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is confident Manchester City target Edinson Cavani will remain with his club this summer.
The Uruguayan striker is one of the most in-demand strikers in Europe at the moment, but De Laurentiis believes the Serie A side's asking price will see off would-be suitors.
Cavani is understood to have attracted interest from a host of clubs including City, Arsenal, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid after firing 67 goals in 90 league appearances since moving to Naples from Palermo in 2010.
De Laurentiis has already confirmed that Real have had one bid for the 25-year-old rejected although with another unnamed club, as both offers fell short of the £54.5m buy-out clause they had inserted into his contract.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "We have rejected an offer of £47m, which wasn't from Real Madrid, whose bid was less than £43m.
"His clause is £54m and interested clubs know that.
"If someone meets it then there is nothing I can do, but I would do everything to convince the player to stay because it takes an agreement with him too.
"The last thing I am thinking about is depriving myself of Cavani. I like him as a player and as a man."
