Arsenal and Liverpool target Mathieu Valbuena insists he has not yet discussed his future with the new Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa.
The French midfielder admits he had a poor season as Marseille finished sixth in Ligue 1, 29 points adrift of champions Paris Saint-Germain.
It cost Elie Baup his job and Bielsa filled the role at the start of this month.
It has been suggested that highly rated playmaker Valbuena will not fit into the former Chile manager's plans next season, which could encourage Arsenal and Liverpool to move for him this summer.
But the 29-year-old remains calm about the situation - and coy about his future.
He said: "I'm the pivot in this France side and I wish I could have produced the same performances for Marseille this season. I'm the first person to regret the poor season we've had and it has been a difficult year from a personal and a collective point of view.
"I don't feel under pressure at Marseille. My form was pretty consistent but my performances also depend on the collective effort put in.
"I know Bielsa by name only. He's bringing in an ambitious project. It's been eight years that I've been at Marseille now.
"People say I'm not trusted by Bielsa but that's not true. He has his project but I haven't discussed it with him yet."
