Edinson Cavani is not satisfied with playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Paris Saint Germain, the club's president has confirmed, but will not be allowed to leave the French capital this summer despite interest from Manchester United.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc has persistently handed the Uruguayan striker a wide role in order to accommodate Ibrahimovic at the forefront of his attack following his £54m arrival from Napoli last summer.

Having struck 16 goals in 25 league appearances, Cavani's presence helped the Parisian giants secure a second consecutive Ligue 1 title, but recently revealed he was keen to speak to the club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi at the end of the season to clarify his future.

United have been relentlessly linked with a move for the 27-year-old while Chelsea also remain in the equation, but Al-Khelaifi insists his club will not contemplate selling the striker, despite his discontent with his position.

"Perhaps he is not satisfied with his position, but he is very happy in Paris," the PSG president told Le Parisien, Le Sport 10 report.

"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."

With the appointment of Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford seemingly imminent, Cavani is reported to be one of the club's three priority transfer targets in a pivotal transfer window for the club along with Southampton full back Luke Shaw and Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas.

However the Uruguayan striker insists he is yet to be contacted by the club.

"Manchester United? I do not know if it is true," Cavani said earlier this month, Le Sport 10 report. "You should ask those who speak to those who give information.

"My future? We will certainly speak after the season, with the president, with the club. And I think it will be for the better."
