Bordeaux have insisted they do not have to sell key playmaker Yoann Gourcuff this summer.
The 23-year-old's future has been the subject of intense speculation since the end of last season, with Bordeaux failing to clinch European qualification for the new campaign.
The likes of Lyon and Arsenal have been linked with Gourcuff, who is currently on international duty with France at the World Cup.
An offer in the region of 25million euros (£20.9m) could be difficult for Bordeaux to resist but majority shareholder Nicolas de Tavernost believes there is a chance he could stay.
"Contrary to what I have heard, we have the means to keep him at the club next season," De Tavernost told L'Equipe.
"He can stay with us. There is no reason for him to leave.
"Anyway, we will see how he feels after the World Cup."
