The Serie A outfit have been linked with a number of players in the transfer window as they look to mount a challenge for the title.

However, De Laurentiis has hit out at the reports and claims the rumours with Cavani and Benzema are false.

"We can't take all the newspapers because there are so many lies," De Laurentiis said to Radio Kiss Kiss.

"Di Maria and Benzema? Very much false.

"I'm very surprised because the Corriere dello Sport editor is experienced and I only wish good things for him. Is Antonio Giordano the only one I can trust to tell the truth?

"There's an agreement between myself and [coach Carlo] Ancelotti. Why would I sign these two old men, with all due respect? I don't have to please the fans, they play football in the bar, I respect them but they need to stay calm and let us work.

"The possibility of Benzema is not remote, it's very remote. Cavani? He earns €20million gross every two months. He's brilliant, but I don't think he'll halve his salary. If Cavani were to call me and tell me he's OK to cut his salary in half and fit the Napoli wage structure, great.

"A deal with Cavani? Absolute nonsense! What kind of idiot goes to Paris by helicopter? You take a jet."
