Than Youcef Atal it will hardly continue in the Nice beyond this summer it is a fact. The promising 24-year-old Algerian lane interests several of Europe's greats, the Madrid one of them although with the PSG and the Borussia Dortmund also very attentive to what happens around Atal.
He is a versatile player in terms of the fact that, although he has been seen more on the right than the left, he can play on both sides.
