Edinson Cavani’s agent has hit back at suggestions the striker will leave Napoli next season. “I didn’t know Mino Raiola was a wizard...”
The story hit the headlines today when Raiola – an agent who does not represent the Uruguayan – told Il Mattino newspaper that the €63m buy-out clause would be activated.
“For now Cavani will stay, but I wouldn’t be so sure about that once June arrives,” Raiola commented.
“I’m sure there are clubs ready to pay that. 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.”
Now the agent who does represent Cavani has hit back at Raiola’s assertion.
“I thought Raiola was an agent. Reading what he said about Cavani, it seems he is also a wizard,” Claudio Anellucci told Radio Radio this evening.
“I am not accustomed to predicting the future of my clients, let alone anyone else’s players.”
