Frei's displays in Ligue 1 have caught the eye of France's bigger fish, with Lyon and Marseille both rumoured to be considering a bid.
But Rennes have moved to quell any notion of the Switzerland international leaving the club during the summer.
They insist he will be in their plans next term and will then either sign a new contract or move on the Bosman Ruling in 12 months time.
"About Frei, both sides agree," said Rennes chairman Emmanuel Cueff.
"Alex knows all the respect we have for him.
"Now it is a financial talk - either we extend with him on conditions that everyone agrees on or he will leave for free at the end of next season."
Cueff also confirmed that Rennes coach Laszlo Boloni will be staying at the helm for the 2005/06 campaign.
