In recent days, mainly due to news published by the French newspaper L'Equipe, it has been speculated on a possible interest of FC Barcelona for the Nice player Ben Arfa. This Tuesday, the club has categorically denied that they want to incorporate the French striker.

In a text published in the newspaper Mundo Deportivo, we can read the answer of Barça to a possible interest: "Ben Arfa will not play for Barcelona. He must have come to see the Sagrada Familia...". Yesterday there was speculation about a trip of the player to the Catalan capital, but Ben Arfa himself denied it.

The refusal of the club for the player is due to the background in his curriculum. The enfant terrible of French football has had many conflicts, confrontations and bad relationships in teams where he has played: Marseille, Lyon or in England.
