Lyon insist Juventus target Bastos not for sale

Olympique Lyon have announced Michel Bastos is not for sale.

The Brazil international has been linked with Juventus.

"Olympique Lyonnais wish to clarify that the Brazilian international Michel Bastos will stay with our club and therefore there's no reason to talk about an eventual transfer, despite what some newspaper reports suggest," read a Lyon statement.

"OL and their Coach Claude Puel are happy with his performances that contributed to the good results of the club in his first season at Lyon and the Brazilian team, which saw him play in the World Cup quarter-finals.

"Bastos is part of the group of players that OL want to focus on for a great campaign ahead, both in the French competitions and the Champions League."
