The on again off again transfer saga surrounding Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani looks set to continue into the summer as the club have now apparently ruled that the player will be going nowhere, the Metro reports.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been keeping tabs on the Uruguayan international for the better part of a year now after rumours surfaced that he had become unsettled in the French capital.

However, Cavani has recently stated his desire to stay at the Parc des Princes, and now the club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has echoed the player’s sentiments by insisting that the striker is not for sale.

“He is young and the future of the club,” he said.

“He needs more confidence but his last match [where he scored twice against Lille] proved his talent. He will be Parisien next season.”

The 28-year-old has played a key role in the club’s defence of their title and pursuit of European success by bagging 23 goals in 46 appearances across all competitions.

Both sides are looking into reinforcing their forward lines this summer, but following this latest development they may be forced to look elsewhere.
