Having managed to squeeze an extra season out of him against the odds, Montpellier’s madcap President Laurent Nicollin confirmed that the club have accepted two seperate offers for star player Younès Belhanda, and that it’s up to the Moroccan attacker to decide his destination.
Loulou was keeping schtum on the identities of the clubs, but reports now suggest the bids were received from Aston Villa and Abu Dhabi-based Al Jazira, with Arsenal and Spurs the other clubs being mooted.
Having watched closely how well friend and former teammate Olivier Giroud (and, to a lesser extent, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa) has adapted to the Premier League, one would think Belhanda will take his chances in the England rather than disappear from the radar
Belhanda’s 2012/13 season highlights can be seen on the clip below.
