After several months without playing, Hatem Ben Arfa is off to find a club. It is in Spain that the former Parisian should relaunch his career.
Hatem Ben Arfa has not appeared on a football field since May 12, 2019 and a Rennes-Guingamp. The 32-year-old striker no longer seemed convinced by the Breton club’s plan and had not concealed his questions a few weeks earlier.
Did he even know that he would spend several months without playing? After having waited a long time for the right project during the summer transfer window, he had resolved to let a few months pass before being affected by family mourning.
Determined to find a club during the winter transfer window, he multiplied contacts with many more or less exotic formations. Galatasaray offered him a gold contract but the Istanbul destination has never had the favors of the former Parisian. A few days ago, the confidences of the player’s entourage suggested that he favored Spain. A championship that Ben Arfa has failed to join several times in the past.
Made to 95%
It seems that this time is the right one. Indeed, the newspaper Mundo Deportivo explains that the native of Clamart is very close to engaging with Valladolid. The current 16th in Liga also contests this Sunday evening a prestigious match against Real Madrid. Currently 16th in the ranking, the club in north-west Spain estimates that the file is 95% complete. It would be a contract until the end of the season.
Also according to Mundo Deportivo , Hatem Ben Arfa could be presented Tuesday after the various medical tests. The club pucelano has the second worst attack in Liga and has made the French international its priority for several days. Also followed with interest by Almeria, Ben Arfa would therefore have accepted the proposal of Valladolid, whose president is none other than the Brazilian Ronaldo. We should finally see him on a pitch.
