In the next few hours, the Italian-Brazilian defender’s departure from the Betic team and later his arrival at Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia would be officially announced. On the other hand, Ramón Planes is already working on signing the Moroccan as the most suitable replacement.
The exit from Louis Philippe at Real Betis while using Moroccan Zouhair Feddal as his replacement. Let’s remember that the team interested in the Italian-Brazilian club is Al Ittihad from Saudi Arabia and that they have not yet closed their doors on the Asian market. However, there are only a few hours left until the closure becomes official, so they are speeding up the operation Sevillian painting.
At Betis, the former Lazio defender is already considered lost, and Manuel Pellegrini was one of those who came up with the idea long before the Arab club backed him. However, he is calm as his replacement is on the way and he is a player who knows Benito Villamarín well. Feddal played for the Betic club between 2017 and 2020.
The benefits of free agency apply to Betis and Feddal
From the start, I knew there was a good chance the Saudi team would pick up Luiz Felipe if the European market closed. This is exactly what they from the board of Al Ittihad are doing, but Ramón Planes had already premeditated everything. The coach could not sign a defender before September 1st without the Italian-Brazilian leaving Heliópolis.
In the event that the former Salernitana eventually signed with the Asian club, the best option to replace the player would be free agency. There is the Moroccan defender, who is already known in the Betic environment. Feddal terminated his contract with Turkish Alanyaspor and was free of charge since July 1st. His agent looked for offers, but nothing that interested the 33-year-old footballer ever came along.
Feddal’s signing for Betis is a matter of time
While the Sevillian team completes the departure of the former Ituano defender, the arrival of the African will be more agile. There is already a set time for this because, as already mentioned, the Saudi Arabian market is about to close. Therefore, the former Valladolid player is expected to arrive at Benito Villamarín before this weekend.
While playing for Real Betis, Zouhair Feddal completed three seasons in which he played 62 games, scoring 6 goals and 6 assists.. His entry into the Betic discipline came in the summer of 2017 when he came from Alavés and received a sum of almost 3 million euros. For 2020 he was sold to Sporting Lisbon for 4.2 kilos.
