Bastos has been courted by AC Milan over the course of the summer, but officials from the Italian side told him last weekend at the Emirates Cup that his price tag was too high.

"There is a long time until the transfer market closes on August 31," he told L'Equipe. "Right now I am concentrated on Lyon, as I have not received any offers. I only read stories in the newspaper.

"In any case, if the club wants to sell me, they ought to say so. During the Emirates Cup someone from Milan told me that I am too expensive. Perhaps that means they already spoke to the Lyon directors."
