Cape Town - Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi insists he has no intention of selling reported Manchester United target Edinson Cavani in the off-season.

The future of the Uruguay international has been the subject of much speculation this season after the player voiced his displeasure at playing out of position for PSG.

Cavani slotted into his favoured striker role on Saturday against Lille, in the absence of the suspended of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and scored a brace in a 6-1 win for Laurent Blanc's side.

The former Napoli star, 28, has been linked with a move to Manchester United, who are lining up a €50 million bid for his services, according to reports in France.

But Al Khelaifi is not about to entertain any offers for Cavani and is adamant the South American will be staying put at the end of the campaign.

"I won't even look at it," the Qatari businessman Le Parisien.

"I don't have a meeting with him. He's young, and the future of the club. He needs more confidence, but his last game proves his talent. He'll be Parisian next season."
