Lille's club president reveals that the club have received no offers for Mathieu Debuchy from Real Madrid.

Lille have dismissed reports that Real Madrid have made an offer for defender Mathieu Debuchy.

The French defender has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital on a number of occasions this summer but Lille's president, Michel Seydoux, has revealed that they have not received an approach from Madrid.

Seydoux said: "We have not been approached. Anyway, Mathieu really wants to play Champions League with us."

Debuchy was rumoured to be a target for Newcastle United for the majority of the transfer window but the 26-year-old is believed to be keen to play Champions League football with his current club this season.

Lille have been drawn in Group F of the competition alongside Bayern Munich, Vallencia and BATE Borisov.
