Local radio reports suggested a deal had been struck with Chelsea over the striker.
â€śWe donâ€™t want to sell Cavani and we have no intention of doing that,â€ť the Spaniard told Radio Marca on Tuesday.
â€śThe President and I want to keep him, heâ€™s a really important player and we are hoping that heâ€™ll continue scoring a lot of goals for us.
â€śSaying that, obviously there is that clause in his contract and if he does leave then it will only be for that amount.
â€śWho wants the boy will have to pay for him even if we donâ€™t need the money.
â€śOur intention is that he stays here because we want to strengthen the squad in order to make it more important.â€ť
