Lacombe opens door to Bastos sale

Lyon director Bernarde Lacombe has revealed Brazil international Michel Bastos could join Juventus.

Bastos priced out of move

Bastos, who plays on the wing for Lyon but at left back for his country, has also been linked with AC Milan and Inter but Tuttosport claims Juve will use the cash raised from the sales of several players - including Christian Poulsen, Mauro Camoranesi and Tiago Mendes - to fund a move.

Lacombe said Lyon would be reluctant to part with Bastos, 27, but suggested they could be tempted by a part-exchange deal.

"Michel is a very important player for us, but our philosophy is that we always listen to someone who is interested in our players," Lacombe said on Football Italia. "It all depends on the offer."

Asked if the deal could include Momo Sissoko or Vincenzo Iaquinta, he said: "Why not? We'd have to evaluate the wage issue first, as we're trying to lower our salary budget."
