Abidal was embroiled in discussions over a possible move for Ait-Nouri but the player's future remains up in the air now.

  • Angers full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri has emerged as a potential target for Real Madrid following Eric Abidal's exit as Barcelona's sporting director, according to L’Equipe.
  • Abidal was involved in talks with Ait-Nouri's agent Jorge Mendes but now that he's stepped down from his role, the 19-year-old's future remains uncertain.
  • As a result, the French publication claims that a move to Madrid is "more likely", with the player also being linked to Los Blancos.
  • The report adds that Angers are demanding over €30m for the teenage prospect and that could lead to complications in a pandemic-hit market.
  • Ait-Nouri made a stellar breakthrough into the first-team as he started 16 games for the French side - until the season was cancelled due to Covid-19.
