According to report, former Barcelona and France star Eric Abidal may be interrogated by the magistrate investigating the beating of Paris Saint-Germain women’s star Kheira Hamraoui.
Police passed the investigation to prosecutors in Versailles outside Paris on Monday.
Seeking new leads in the case after Hamraoui’s teammate Aminata Diallo was released from custody without charge, it was established Hamraoui was using a telephone SIM card registered in Abidal’s name on the night of the attack.
Hamraoui recently returned to PSG following three seasons at Barcelona, where Abidal was director of football from 2018-2020.
Abidal is a household name in France after his years as a Barcelona player and French international. He made a stunning return to his playing career after undergoing a liver transplant in 2012
