Monaco skipper Ludovic Giuly will be in the shop window when he leads his side out for the UEFA Champions League final against Porto in Gelsenkirchen.
The talented France international has attracted interest from Barcelona, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
As with coach Didier Deschamps, Monaco are keen to extend Giuly's deal but on reduced terms. Hence, the player will invite offers from elsewhere.
Barcelona officials will be in Paris on Tuesday in order to try and negotiate for Giuly with é¼12 million rumoured to be the fee involved. However, no serious talks with Monaco are to take place before May 26.
Chelsea are also exploring the possibility of landing Giuly to replace Jesper Gronkjaer if the Denmark international joins Birmingham City.
Real are late arrivals on the scene but they would only want the player in 2005, once Luis Figo has departed the Spanish capital.
