The young midfielder has established himself as one of the brightest prospects in French football, with his progress not going unnoticed.
Italian giants Juventus were recently linked with a bid for the 20-year-old, after watching Mavuba in action for Les Girondins.
Reports now suggest Spanish titans Real Madrid have dispatched an envoy to put Mavuba under the microscope.
The continued speculation surrounding Mavuba is starting to irritate the club's chairman Jean-Louis Triaud, who insists he has fielded no offers for the starlet.
With some of Europe's top clubs mooted as admirers of Mavuba, Triaud jokes that Premiership outfit United will be next in line.
"We haven't received any offers for Rio," affirmed Triaud.
"In a few days we will probably know Manchester United are attracted, too."
