Recent reports have suggested United were eyeing a move for Cavaleiro after he caught the eye while featuring for Benfica B this season.
The 19-year-old has scored seven goals in 10 appearances so far this season and United scouts are thought to have cast an eye over him.
However, Cavaleiro insists he is not thinking of leaving Benfica and is determined to establish himself at the Estadio da Luz.
"My job is to earn an opportunity for the first team and this depends on the coach," Cavaleiro told radio station Antena 1. "There are very good strikers at Benfica and it is not easy to get into the first team.
"I have a contract until June 2018 and I feel good here.
"For me it's a huge honour to represent Benfica because it's the club of my heart. I want to continue here and succeed in the first team."
