Highly rated 21 year old centre back from France joins on a free.
Chelsea’s transfer palooza summer 2020 rolled on with 21 year old French centre back being announced as our 4th signing of the season. Sarr sings on a 5 year contract and will be heading straight out on loan for the coming season.
Sarr broke out on the scene in the 16/17 season as he made 32 appearances for his home town club Nice. Sarr gradually kept on getting more and more game time and eventually made 38 appearances for Nice in the 18/19 season. The 19/20 season was slightly poor for Sarr as he was forced to play out of position and Covid impacted the league as a whole. 119 appearances at the age of 21 is not a joking matter and Sarr has shown himself to be a good passer of the ball and adept with his left foot as well.
Malang Sarr is highly rated in France, a left footed centre back is a highly sought after player in current windows and while Sarr will be heading out on loan the coming seasons might prove this transfer to be an absolute steal for Chelsea. It is rumoured that Sarr is sought after by many Bundesliga teams and Germany does help many defenders improve their game. Sarr will be one to keep an eye on for sure in the coming season. Welcome to Chelsea and hopefully you have a brilliant loan season ahead.
