Alphonse Areola was able to garnish his record with a Spanish league title on the side of Real Madrid. Loaned by PSG last summer due to Keylor Navas’ arrival at the Parc des Princes, the goalkeeper returned to the club during the summer, even if his future was not there.
Sergio Rico having been hired, Areola had to find a club, under penalty of putting himself in a difficult position, especially compared to the Blues and Euro 2021. It is in the Premier League, and in Fulham, promoted, that he will evolve from now on.
