Cavani rules out Manchester United move: I'm staying at Paris Saint-Germain

The Uruguay international was on Louis van Gaal's shortlist this summer but insists he is happy to remain with the French champions
Edinson Cavani has ruled out a potential move to Manchester United this summer by insisting that he will stay at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Uruguayan only joined the French champions in a £55 million deal from Napoli last July but found himself playing in an unfamiliar wide role during his first season in Ligue 1.

As revealed by Goal, Cavani was on Louis van Gaal's transfer shortlist but the 27-year-old maintains he is happy to remain in France.

"I'm certain that I'll stay - why wouldn't I?" Cavani told L'Equipe.

"I feel very good in Paris, I have a contract to respect at PSG. I'd prefer to be here. I feel good here.

"Like I've already said, that doesn't depend solely on the position of a player but also things that can happen at the club."

Cavani revealed that he has held talks with the coaching staff over his role at the club but claims all of his previous concerns over his position have now been addressed.

"The staff replied to what I had mentioned," the explained. "We had some small problem with respect to the position I wanted but I feel very good about that.

"I waited for the right moment to speak. It's important for a striker to play in a position which is natural for him. Now everyone knows by position and it's not worth talking about."
