Paris Saint-Germain have warned Manchester United and Chelsea not to bother making a summer bid to sign Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguay forward has been linked with a big-money move to both Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge in recent weeks amid reports that he is unsettled in the French capital.

We don’t buy a player to then sell him the following year

Nasser Al-Khelaifi

The 27-year-old, who moved to France from Napoli last summer, scored 16 goals in 30 Ligue 1 appearances despite his unhappiness at being forced to play out wide for most of the season.

But PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has once again insisted that Cavani remains part of the French club’s plans for next season.

“Perhaps he is not satisfied with his position, but he is very happy in Paris,” Al-Khelaifi told Le Parisien.

“He wants to play as a central striker, but these things are for the coach to decide and maybe he will change the system for next season.

“Cavani is very important for us, with his style of play he is very unselfish and he won’t leave.

“Our project is based on the long term and we don’t buy a player to then sell him the following year.”
