Monaco starlet Jeremy Menez admits he is unlikely to leave the Principality outfit this year.
Roma have spoken of their desire to land the 21-year-old, whilst Premier League Portsmouth are also said to be showing a strong interest.
But Menez - who had groin surgery only in June - admits a move is not very likely.
"I am open to offers and I wanted to go higher, but my surgery came at a bad time and anyway I know they won't let me leave," he said.
Menez also hopes Monaco could be in for a better season this term.
"Monaco could have bigger ambitions as this group seems a little stronger than last year," he said.
