Bastos: Happy at Lille
Michel Bastos has hinted that his future at Lille could hinge on whether the club secure a UEFA Champions League berth this season.
The left-sided Brazilian player has been linked with the likes of Juventus and Bayern Munich after an impressive term with Les Dogues.
Lille remain very much in the hunt for a top-three finish in Ligue 1, and, for now, Bastos is remaining focused on his club's cause.
He told skysports.com: "I am relaxed about all the talks. I have been playing well, so there will always be clubs interested if you do well.
"But the thought of moving now is not in my head. I would love to continue here if we qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
"But you never know at the end of the season."
