Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has suggested he could still leave Montpellier despite the club's president, Louis Nicollin, insisting otherwise at the weekend.
AC Milan have apparently expressed an interest in defender Yanga-Mbiwa, 23, as a replacement for Thiago Silva, but Nicollin warned: "Yanga-Mbiwa will not leave. This is clear as day.
"In order to have advanced negotiations with Milan, we would need to have an agreement. We don't have an agreement, so there are no advanced negotiations.
"I know that they offered around €6 million, but even triple that would not be enough. I am not even looking for a replacement, so he will definitely not be leaving. I don't care if he's nearing the end of his contract. It's not important, and I don't care."
However, the player maintains there is still a possibility that he could move on this summer.
"I'm here, but with a question mark because you never know," he told France Football. "There are some offers that you cannot refuse. For example, if a club comes in with a project that suits me and offers €7-8 million, what can you say to a figure like that?
"The club has always been good with me. I conduct myself well and there are no problems."
