Edinson Cavani snubs move despite Manchester United interest

Paris Saint Germain forward Edinson Cavani has ruled out a move this summer despite reported interest from clubs like Manchester United and Juventus.

The Manchester Evening News carries Cavani's quotes from Sky Italia, where the Uruguayan international admits that he is happy to stay at the Parc des Princes for the foreseeable future.

Cavani has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, with Louis van Gaal expected to decline the chance to make Radamel Falcao's move permanent at the end of the season.

Juve were also expected to make an offer for Cavani, who at one stage earlier this season was reportedly unhappy in Paris having been played out of position.

But speaking to Sky Italia after PSG's humbling 3-1 home defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League, Cavani said: "There is too much talk about my future but I will remain here.

"I will respect my contract and I'm focusing on doing well for PSG."

PSG, who are in a battle with Lyon for the Ligue 1 title, were second best against Barcelona on Wednesday night and now face an almost impossible task to overturn the deficit in the second leg at the Nou Camp.

Cavani, 28, will be a key figure as they look to do so, and the former-Napoli striker's comments here suggest he's committed to making the Parisian club one of Europe's top sides.

What to do

The £50m-rated star still has three more years on his PSG contract, which would take him past his 30th birthday and with it, probably any real chance of moving to a Premier League club like Manchester United.

Instead, van Gaal will have to focus his transfer attentions elsewhere this summer. The club are almost certain to be on the lookout for another forward at the end of the season, with Robin van Persie's future at the club uncertain as well as Falcao's.

That would leave Rooney as the central option.

What do you think Manchester United fans - if you can't get Cavani, which striker should van Gaal go after this summer?
