Edinson Cavani has vowed to stay at Manchester United until his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Uruguayan has been linked with a move to Barcelona this month.
And United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has confirmed Cavani will see out the remainder of the campaign.
“I told him that if it was up to me I would want him to stay,” Rangnick said ahead of Monday’s FA Cup third-round clash with Aston Villa.
“I had a conversation with him [on Thursday]. He came into my office and we spoke for almost half an hour and he told me he will definitely stay and would want to stay until the end of the season.
“Not only because I told him that he should stay or has to stay, he did it on his own behalf and he told me that I can rely on him to stay until the end of the season and give his very best and be a role model for the young players.
“If he should play from the start, he’s available and he’s happy to play.
“Even if he’s not playing, he will be trying to be the best possible role model for the other players and for me this is good news.”
