De Laurentiis is optimistic regarding the club's chances of retaining Cavani's services for the foreseeable future.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "The clause of €63million? No-one has paid it.
"Last summer I refused €55m and Real Madrid didn't even get to 50.
"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."
