Napoli will survive the sale of Ezequiel Lavezzi, says skipper Paolo Cannavaro.

Lavezzi is expected to complete his move to PSG on Monday, but there are reports of reinforcements in defence.

"I exchange messages with more or less all my teammates and can assure you Lavezzi doesn't speak French yet. He still speaks perfect Neapolitan.

"Napoli are a side who want to grow and do better every time. I just hope they don't buy any defenders, or I'll be out of a job," he laughed.
