If it were finally allowed to recruit players this summer, the club Chelsea would be willing to pay 40 million euros on the Nice right side Youcef Atal, according to the Telegraph.
A hat-trick and the auctions fly away. Author of three goals Sunday afternoon at home against Guingamp (3-0), the Nice Youcef Atal attracts all the European spotlight. The Telegraph reports a strong interest from Chelsea. The Blues would even be ready to put 40 million euros on the Algerian arrived on the Côte d’Azur at the last summer mercato, although the Nice coach Patrick Vieira said he would stay next season.
A recruitment ban lifted?
Problem, Londoners are currently banned from recruitment by FIFA until 2020 after signing non-European minors. But the champion of England 2017 hopes that this ban will be lifted in the coming days. He could thus take action on the case of Nice, right side training but who evolved left winger in his last Ligue 1 match.
Youcef Atal (22) had arrived for less than a million euros at the Gym last summer from Kortrijk (Belgium) and the Riviera club could make a big financial gain. The Telegraph also evokes serious competitors on the Atal case: Bayern Munich or Atletico Madrid.
