Paris Saint-Germain have ruled out the possibility of Manchester United and Chelsea target Edinson Cavani leaving in the summer. 

The Premier League duo have been linked with the Uruguayan international during the last few months and were recently given hope in their pursuit as reports suggested Cavani had become disillusioned with life at Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer for £55million, has had to play out of position for the majority of the season due to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's role in the side.

Manchester United and Chelsea - in particular - are looking to sign a world-class forward in the summer with Cavani being among the names thought to have been on the aforementioned duo's transfer wish-list.

However Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has poured cold water on the possibility of Cavani leaving the Ligue 1 outfit at the end of the season.

Speaking to the Metro, Al-Khelaifi said on Cavani: "Edinson Cavani is important for us. He will be staying."

Cavani is expected to be given the chance to impress in a central role during the next couple of weeks as Ibrahimovic picked up a knock against Chelsea on Wednesday.
