Since bursting onto the scene and establishing himself as a top prospect for club and country, the midfielder has led a more reserved life and is not publicly entertaining leaving Rennes.
He said: "I see, I hear things. It is nice to hear everything that is said but those things are not going to distract me.
"I know how to differentiate things. I'm at Rennes and the other clubs is not a topic for now. We will see later.
"Now I go out a lot less, I hide a little more. Life outside of sports has changed and the rivals in the field They also see me differently than a year and a half ago.
"You don't have to look so much at what is around you and you have to concentrate on what is essential.
"I have two years left on my contract and there is time to talk about all this. There will be negotiations to renew, this is my training club and I would like to stay here."
