Football transfer news – Calcio news (notizie): The 23-year-old Uruguayan centre-forward looked as if he might leave Sicily in January after Palermo fans attacked his car.
Inter, Lazio and Juventus were all interested, but Cavani has settled down again and now looks set to commit to a long-term deal with the Rosanero.
“There are no difficulties,” Palermo director of sport Walter Sabatini explained. “Cavani is a very serious lad and he will respect the agreement made with us.”
When asked about reports suggesting that Inter are lining up an €18m bid that would include Rene Krhin, Sabatini replied: “I haven’t heard anything about it.”
Cavani has built on the progress he made last season, scoring 10 goals in 24 starting appearances for the Rosanero in 2009-10.
His goals have been instrumental in helping Palermo rise to fourth place in Serie A.
