Ribéry, Rami, Falcao… These football stars have signed with graduates. Sport

It was one of the trends of the summer transfer window. With the health crisis, many clubs have favored the arrival of free players. The promoted in particular, often less fortunate than their competitors. Among these, several have bet on football glories at the end of their career, in search of a rebound or a final challenge.

Franck Ribéry at the Salernitana

Present for two years in Italy, at Fiorentina, « Kaiser Franck » has changed air this summer, but no country. At the end of the contract at The Viola, the 38-year-old Frenchman signed a one-year contract (plus an optional one) at the Salernitana. The promoted, returned to D1 for the first time since 1999, is renowned for the fervor of his supporters. They have already torn the jersey n ° 7 of Ribery. But the Habs’ debut was complicated, with 23 minutes played in the 4-0 loss to Torino last Sunday.

Adil Rami in Troyes

On August 24, the Estac announced the arrival of the 2018 world champion. After two years of struggle, where the Habs have chained clubs (Fenerbahçe, Sotchi, Boavista) and injuries, Rami (35) signs his return to France .

If his solid experience can be used in the Trojan locker room, he is still too short physically to be called in the group.

Radamel Falcao at Rayo Vallecano

Like Rami, Radamel Falcao (35) is coming out of two difficult seasons in Galatasaray (Turkey). Undermined by injuries, he could not show all his talent. His contract, which ran until 2022, was terminated this summer.

Moussa Sissoko in Watford

He is the only player on this list to have been bought by a promoted (3.5 million euros). If Moussa Sissoko (32) can still play at the high level for a few years, he has signed up for a club less rated than his former (Tottenham). More titular among Spurs, the French want to regain a central place among Hornets. He has already played two Premier League matches with Watford, losing two.

Mario Balotelli at Adana Demirspor

This transfer of « Super Mario » (31 years) to the promoted in Turkish D1 is above all akin to a story of big money. Adana, mounted in Süper Lig after 26 years of waiting, was taken over three years ago by a wealthy businessman. He injected a lot of money into the club, until he signed a three-season contract to Mario Balotelli (free), with an annual salary of € 2.7 million. For the moment, the arrival of the Italian is not a great success, with zero wins in four matches (17e of the championship).
