There were rumours spreading last night that President Aurelio De Laurentiis had called Cavani to ask if he wanted a return to the Stadio San Paolo.
Canale 21 then implied the Uruguayan was a guest of Napoli at the Hotel Vesuvio.
This prompted a group of fans to wait outside the hotel at 3am in the hope of spotting their former hero.

Gonzalo Higuain was his replacement, but Juventus activated the €90m release clause in the Argentine’s contract.
