Betis CEO: Fekir's release clause is €100m and Barca don't worry me

Wed 16 February 2022 | 17:29

Nabil Fekir is in the best shape of his life right now. The French midfielder is at the center of a Real Betis side that is sweeping Spain and Europe, gaining overwhelming praise and even claims that he is the finest player in LaLiga right now.

Fekir scored six goals and made six assists in 22

LaLiga

games, as well as a goal and an assist in four

Europa League

games, so far this season. 

Betis are now in third place in the Primera Division and will face Zenit St. Petersburg in the Europa League's first knockout phase tomorrow night in Russia.

But, as it is typical when a footballer draws attention to himself as a result of his high quality in the play, the hype machine has begun to link Fekir to a lucrative summer move. 

Barcelona is one of the clubs said to be eager in signing the 28-year-old, with chairman

Joan Laporta

reportedly admiring Fekir.

Angel Haro

, the president of Betis, was unfazed by this.

“Fekir? He’s a great player,” Haro said as per 

Diario AS

. “But I wouldn’t dare say if he’s the best in La Liga. It’s a spectacle, watching him play. I hope he’ll be here for as long as possible. His release clause is €100m. Barcelona? They don’t worry me. It’s a good thing because it means the players’s status is high.”
