Barcelona schemer Ludovic Giuly is aware of talk he could swap clubs with Lyon full-back Eric Abidal.

Reports have suggested that the Spanish champions want to sign France international Abidal in the summer.

In a bid to tempt Lyon into accepting the defender's departure, Barca could offer the talented Giuly in exchange.

But while the former Monaco ace has acknowledged the rumours, he stressed his desire to fulfil his contract at Camp Nou.

"I am aware of that possible swap," Giuly told RMC.

"I would like to finish my contract with Barca until 2009.

"But in football you can never say never."
