Bouchet has always stated his intent to hang onto van Buyten, but believes that a major club, and a sizeable bid, could prey the player from them.
"Intransferable doesn't mean anything," said Bouchet.
"If van Buyten receives an offer from a club the same size as Marseille then he will stay - even if he gets better wages.
"If he gets an offer from one of the top five clubs in Europe then it is a different matter."
Manchester United have been heavily linked with the defender, and the lengthy ban for Rio Ferdinand has obviously rekindled speculation.
Another player that could be leaving is Fernandao - although the chairman is keen to see the player given a chance to shine first.
"Several clubs are said to be interested because he isn't playing often," added Bouchet.
"He has less of a place because of the different system this season.
"Fernandao has to play because he is a great player and a good man.
"We will quickly study his case when the offers start to arrive."
