Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi has made it clear that he will not consider any bids from Manchester United for star forward Edinson Cavani.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the Uruguayan forward after seeing their strikers Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie struggle for form and fitness during the course of the season.

Apart from United, Premier League rivals Arsenal were also said to be interested as they look to bring in a forward able to challenge Olivier Giroud for the starting role. Cavani's agent Claudio Anellucci had hinted earlier in the season that his client is open to move to England or Spain, but the former Napoli forward quashed the speculation and contradicted his agent by suggesting that he will remain with PSG.

Moreover, the president has made it clear that Cavani will not be sold, even if the 20-times English champions make a bid of £36m (€50m) it will not be considered as the club considers the Uruguay international as the future of the club.

"I have not held talks with Cavani over his future. He is a young player and is the future of PSG," the club's president Nasser Al Khelaifi said, as quoted by the Independent.

"A €50m (£36m) offer from Manchester United? I would not even look at such a bid. Edinson needs a bit more confidence, but his last game against Lille, in which he scored twice, was further proof of his talent," the president added.

Al Khelaifi also clarified Zlatan Ibrahimovic's future and is confident the talented Swede will remain with the French champions next season, and is hoping that the former Inter Milan and Barcelona star stays with the club beyond 2016 when his contract expires.

"Ibrahimovic will still be with PSG next season. There is no doubt about that."

"I don't know what he wants after 2016, but we will discuss that at some point. I would like him to stay at PSG in whatever role suits him. We want to keep our star player here," the PSG chief added.
