Kondogbia, 20, has been targeted by Real Madrid and Juventus after a successful season in La Liga and impressive performances in France's Under-20 World Cup winning campaign.

But Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido has warned Real and Juve not to consider making a move for the youngster.

"Kondogbia is not on the market," Del Nido said. "But whoever wants him has to pay his €20m clause. But please, any team that tries to sign him - don’t. We will consider it an attack.

"I’ve already reached an agreement with [third-party owner] Doyen and Kondogbia will not be leaving this summer."
