Hatem Ben Arfa has no intention of sitting on a year of salary. He will not leave PSG with a big check in the pocket.
Hatem Ben Arfa may be a great lover of the PSG, he is not willing to accept any compromise on the part of leaders in the île de france. At the end of a season 2016/17, which will be mostly seen polishing the bench of the first team, the international tricolor is not considering a second duty go free, without the slightest compensation.
The balance sheet of the recruits of the PSG
If we are to believe the revelations made by le Parisien, Ben Arfa, would have decided, in consultation with its representatives to “make pay” the maximum responsible in the île de france. In the case where the latter came to him to show the door to the exit, which is very likely as a hypothesis, the old Nice is going to ask for a cheque the amount of which would be tantamount to the totality of the wages which he must reach by the end of his contract at the Parc des Princes. That is, until 2018. And this represents a colossal sum of€ 6M.
This is the radio silence on the part of management
For the PSG, the best solution would be to find a club buyer for Ben Arfa. Well, it will already let free a player whose market value is estimated between 3 and 5M€. And, on the other hand, they will also be able to negotiate a possible “transfer of charges” and not have accountability to the player.
Ben Arfa, who has never spoken of a departure during the season, hoped to have a meeting with Patrick Kluivert at the end of the previous fiscal year to be fixed quickly as to his fate. On the evening of the victory in the final of the Coupe de France, the director of football has promised to contact him. But the call never came and today the Netherlands is no longer an employee of the club. About Antero Henrique, the new sports director, does not seem to establish the record Ben Arfa as a priority.
