Edinson Cavani's representative has hit back at claims from an agent who suggested the Napoli striker could be on his way out of the club next summer.

Mino Raiola, a well known agent who resporesents Zlatan Ibrahimovic among other players, told Il Mattino that he expected Cavani to move in the summer.

"For now Cavani will stay but I wouldn't be so sure about that once June arrives," Raiola said. "I'm sure there are clubs ready to pay [the release fee]. But only five clubs in the world can afford to do that - Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain.

"You are intelligent enough on your own to understand where Cavani will play his football next season."

Claudio Anellucci represents Uruguay striker Cavani and he has hit back, warning Raiola to stop meddling in affairs that do not concern him.

"I thought Raiola was an agent. Reading what he said about Cavani, it seems he is also a wizard," Claudio Anellucci told Radio Radio. "I am not accustomed to predicting the future of my clients, let alone anyone else's players."
