French media: Abidal's true reason for contacting Fekir revealed
- Barca's sporting director has simply advised his compatriot to join Real Betis.
- Abidal has told Fekir he could be a Catalan player in a year or two.
- Former Barcelona defender is in great relations with Lyon playmaker.
The Catalans' sporting director has supposedly urged Nabil to agree on a Betis move. The 26-year-old has been linked with Verdiblancos for several weeks already.
Still, the same source claims that Abidal hinted about the future possibility of coming to Blaugrana during the talk. Fekir's alleged move to Betis could be just a step up in his professional career.
However, Fekir's chances to join Betis are considered as something really surprising by many football lovers. Lyon attacking midfielder even gave an interview to Liverpool's official media last year but his move was broken off at the last minute.
