France international and Liverpool target Rio Mavuba says he is likely to leave Lille when his contract expires in the summer.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Liverpool for some time now, but a move failed to materialize.
However, he has opened the door to a possible deal.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “My future? We are discussing it, my agents are there for that reason.
“I am still thinking of a probable departure. I have always said, if I play in France, it will be at Lille or Bordeaux.”
