Moussa Sissoko has cast doubt over his future at Tottenham Hotspur by describing last season as “the worst of my career”.
Sissoko only joined Tottenham from Newcastle United last summer in a deal worth £30m, making the 27-year-old the joint most expensive player in the north London club’s history.
However, Sissoko endured a difficult first campaign at White Hart Lane, with the France international playing an entire Premier League match on just two occasions.
“You can never be sure of anything,” Sissoko told L’Equipe.
“Once again, what I want is for everything to be clear. If the manager is no longer counting on me, if he thinks that other players are better, then he should say it.
“The idea is to be clear very early to allow, if I need to leave, for my agent to do good work… Even if everyone knows that I prefer England, I have never closed the door to any league.
“We will see what the offers are, but Ligue 1 continues to be attractive. We have seen this year with PSG and Monaco but also teams like Nice, Lyon and Marseille. We will analyse everything and try to make the best choice.
“I fell from a high point this season. Even though I never thought I would play all the games, I was not expecting such a small amount of playing time.
“It was the worst season of my career even though as a team it was certainly the best, so it’s weird. We’ll talk with my agent to make the best decision. My goal is to go to the 2018 World Cup.”
One thing Sissoko has asked for, though, is an honest appraisal from Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino about where his future lies this summer.
“I would like him to communicate better,” he added.
“I want a completely honest conversation to see what they plan to do, what they are seeing in terms of my future. From that moment on, everything will be clearer in my head.”
