Manchester United & Chelsea hit with £50m transfer blow

Manchester United and Chelsea seem to have finally had their hopes definitively dashed with regards to the capture of Edinson Cavani this summer, as Paris Saint-Germain big-wig Nasser al-Khelaifi has confirmed that they will not be selling him.

The Premier League duo have both been hot on the tails of the free scoring Uruguayan in recent times, and the imminent appointment of Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford was expected to tip the scales in United’s favour. However, following the confirmation of PSG’s retention of the Ligue 1 title, Al-Khelaifi claimed that his club were not thinking about considering any offers for Cavani in the coming window.

According to Sky Sports, Cavani told Canal +: "Cavani? He will stay here - he has a contract with us.”

The PSG chief then rubbished talks of the club having the sell the £50million-rated forward only a year after signing him from Napoli, because of the breach in Financial Fair Play rules.

“About Financial Fair Play, I am still very confident, we are still in talks with UEFA,” he said.

“I don't confirm the sanctions - we will play in the Champions League, but may be with conditions.”

Reports earlier on today relayed quotes from Cavani himself which alluded to the fact that his future was far from settled at the Parc des Princes, but it would appear that Al-Khelaifi has contrasting opinions.
