The PSG president affirmed he is in close contact with many of the club's players, including Thiago Silva.
"I spoke to him today [Wednesday] to congratulate him on the success he has had with his country in the Confederations Cup, and he told me he was very happy in Paris," he said.
Al Khelaifi also insisted PSG would reject a reported 32million euros offer from Barca because they have ambitions of building on their Ligue 1 triumph last season.
"We won't evaluate it or contemplate it. We won't even sit down to negotiate," he said.
"Selling is exactly the opposite of what we want to do. Our intention, after winning the domestic league title, is to fight for other more ambitious goals and make more signings."
