Sarr wanted by Spanish giants

Real Madrid and Barcelona are among the clubs who wish to sign highly-rated teenage Nice defender Malang Sarr, according to reports.

Sky Sports state the two La Liga giants are interested in signing the 18-year-old – who has a €40m release clause in his contract – along with English champions Chelsea.

Of Senegalese descent, Sarr has established himself as a regular in the France Under 21 side and quickly became a cornerstone of the successful Nice team – making 31 appearances last season.

Having been born in Nice and part of the club’s academy since he was aged 5, the defender signed his first professional contract in November last year.
