But I want to come full circle with the France team “, he had asserted, adding: “ the France team is well anchored in my head. “After rejecting Manchester United, Chelsea or PSG in recent months, the native of Marseille has obviously not changed his mind: the selection remains his top priority.
He reconnected with Florentino Perez
