The Frenchman reached the blue sky in 2017 to a value close to 60 million euros.
In 2022, the 27-year-old defender was transferred to HMP Prison from Manchester after spending several months in Liverpool, one of the UK’s maximum security prisons, to “protect your integrity in the face of growing fear for your own safety“, after being accused of four rapes and one sexual assault.

At the moment, he has only played minutes in three matches in the French championship, as he has had muscle problems for several weeks that prevent him from keeping up with the group’s dynamics.
