The versatile France full-back could be coaxed into a transfer, but only if he was given assurances about his time on the pitch. Djibril Sidibe says that he would consider a summer move to Arsenal or Barcelona, but admits that he is not certain he would make the jump from Monaco.
He has flourished under Leonardo Jardim at Stade Louis II, helping the principality club to the top of Ligue 1 and into the Champions League quarter-finals.His vibrant displays have resulted in interest fromsome of Europe’s biggest clubs, but while he said that he holds great ambitions, he is willing to be patient.
“The risk is going to going to a big club to be a replacement, to go backwards and to be loaned away – it’s complicated,” he told RMC.
“My criteria, it’s playing time. After that, if a club I could not refuse guaranteed me time to play, I would have to think.“Every player wants to play against the best in thebest leagues. Today, I’m lucky to play with Monaco in a good team. We’re in the Champions League, we’re scoring lots of goals and we’re still capable of winning every competition.“I’m very happy at Monaco.”
Sidibe has played 38 times for the Ligue 1 leadersthis season, producing three goals and five assists.
