Nabil Fekir is clear on this and he has communicated this to Betis in recent days: his intention, despite the many teams that have been knocking on his door for a long time, is none other than to continue wearing verdiblanco next season. The French midfielder thus settles any debate on its continuity, leaving only two small cracks open to a hypothetical change of scenery this summer.
One of them would be the call of one of the ‘greats’, thinking especially of Real Madrid or Barcelona for their good adaptation to the Spanish LaLiga . The other, that was Betis , in the “war” economy that is looming in the world of soccer due to the coronavirus health crisis , who would need to carry out a major transfer to adjust his budget. Neither case occurs today.
Important clubs like Milan , Arsenal or Newcastle have set their sights on Fekir , the undisputed leader of the green and white attack this season with seven goals and six assists in 22 games. But the Frenchman does not want to move unless a proposal from a champion team crosses his path, with an ambitious sports project ahead.
Fekir has adapted perfectly to Betis . Very well received from the first day in the locker room, he very positively values the treatment he receives both from the coaching staff and from the club in general, where they are always aware of their needs. And his family, essential in his signing last summer, is very comfortable in Seville and has no plans to change his scene when he has only been in the city for a year.
Fekir is the most valuable player in the Betis squad. Its market price is between 40 and 50 million euros, according to the CIES Football Observatory . And its termination clause is close to 100 million. A prohibitive amount that allows Betis to keep an ace up its sleeve. Quite possibly, to continue enjoying his talent for at least one more season.
