Chelsea defender Malang Sarr is upbeat ahead of next season after joining Chelsea from the French Ligue One last summer.

Sarr signed up for Chelsea on a free transfer from Nice back in August 2020 but was immediately sent on a season-long loan to Porto last term.

The 22-year-old centre-back is yet to feature for Chelsea, but continued his career development as he made 19 first-team appearances for the Primeira Liga outfit in all competitions.

Sarr impressed for Porto last season in games against the likes of Manchester City and Juventus in the Champions League.

The young centre-back is looking ahead to the new season and is keen to perform for Chelsea. Sarr also revealed that he has spoken to Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, and you can tell that he’s ready to give his all.

“It’s a pleasure to be here, starting to work, we are working very hard and very well so I’m happy. I have enjoyed being here,” he told Chelsea’s official website.

“I have spoken a little bit with the manager, he knows I speak French so we have been talking. I have a good feeling here; everybody is very good with me. I can feel everybody is ambitious here.

“They want to work and they really want us to give the best every day, and that’s a good thing because that’s how I see things. I really want to work hard every day and try to improve in every aspect.

“I hope to join the team and help the team to the top.

“They finished the season as Kings of Europe. I’m here to help and to let the team stay at the highest level, trying to bring all the good energy and my work to the team. I know the club is ambitious and I am ambitious as well, so it’s a perfect match.”
