Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Rennes President Olivier Létang confirmed that he had received a proposal for Senegalese international winger Ismaila Sarr from Watford, but that the Hornets have not since returned for the player.
“We have not had a new offer since the last time. The English club did not come back to us. I am not going to give you the size of the bid. Today, we are happy if he stays for another year. The English market closes in 17 days. The likelihood that he stays with us is very big… Yes it is Watford (who made the offer). Other clubs made enquiries, without putting in a firm bid. Today, we are protecting the interests of the club. We have spoken about it again with Julien (Stéphan). If Ismaila stays for another year with us, we would be happy. If a club comes in and makes an offer, we will discuss it.”
