Napoli duo to elude Mancini

Paris St Germain are set to win the race for Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi, while Edinson Cavani does not want to join Manchester City.

French Ligue 1 outfit Paris' sporting director Leonardo has revealed that the big spending club are poised to snap up 27-year-old Argentine striker, Lavezzi, in a 25 million euros deal.

He told Sky Italia: "We have not yet completed the deal. Will he (Lavezzi) be unveiled to the media next week? We shall see."

City boss Roberto Mancini had been linked with a swoop of Lavezzi, who gave his side a hard time in last season's Europa League. But it now looks like he will be moving to Paris on a five-year contract worth 5 million euros per season.

Meanwhile, Lavezzi's Napoli team-mate, Cavani, who has scored 66 goals in 94 Serie A matches since moving to Naples from Palermo in 2010, has dismissed the possibility of moving to the Etihad Stadium after the London Olympics this summer.

The 25-year-old Uruguay international told El Pais: "I just think of Napoli. I am not leaving for another club this summer. I will continue here. I have four years left on this contract and I am very confident about my future.

"Now, I want to rest and then help my team at the Games in London."
