The 21-year-old has risen to prominence with Bordeaux this term, with his displays having caught the eye of Real Madrid.
Mavuba has also expressed a desire to play for Arsenal during his career but is in no hurry to quit Les Girondins.
The France international is under contract to Bordeaux until 2009 and is happy to give his current club a chance to fulfil his ambition of UEFA Champions League football.
But if Mavuba witnesses no signs of marked improvement, he will talk to Bordeaux in the summer about his future.
"I am still under contract for four years and, by making a name for myself at Bordeaux, I have achieved a dream," said Mavuba.
"But I want to play in great matches and I would like Les Girondins to have a team to compete with the best Championnat teams next season.
"We will talk about it at the end of the season.
"However, for the moment, I have had no contact [with any interested clubs]."
