The Senegal international insists on developing himself in the French top-flight and the desire to see out his contract at the Roazhon Park

Ismaila Sarr has confirmed that he will stay in Rennes amid interests from Barcelona and Juventus this summer.

The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the most promising talents in the football world which he proved at the 2018 World Cup where he played every minute of Senegal’s games before their group stage exit.

Following his return from Russia, the youngster’s representative, Thierno Seydi claimed that top European clubs made enquiries about the forward and even placed a transfer valuation of around €50-60 million.

However, Sarr who joined Rennes in a four-year deal from Metz in July 2017 has shut the door on any summer exit.

“I think I will stay in Rennes. I still have two or three years of contract remaining. I focus on my season and Rennes. It's too early to leave,” Sarr told Ouest France.

The Teranga Lions attacker fired Rennes a 1-0 win over Angers on Saturday with his sixth league goal for the Roazhon Park outfit.

And he revealed his feeling after helping the Red and Blacks bounc back from their 3-1 defeat to Lille on the league opening day.

“It’s very good. We needed to win, to bring back these three points. Everything is fine,” he added.

“I feel good and it's thanks to the team. Because I cannot do the job alone, it is not possible.”
