Hatem Ben Arfa has confirmed that he will be leaving French giants Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The forward, who moved to Paris after a great season with Nice in 2015/16, has fallen out of favour at Parc des Princes and has not even made a single appearance in the current 2017/18 season, seemingly frozen out by Unai Emery. HBA’s last PSG appearance was in the Cup almost a year back (against Avranches)

Prior to this game Arjen Robben had taunted PSG saying that “Money doesn’t buy goals”. Unfortunately for the Dutch winger, it did, and with Bayern suffering a chastening defeat at Parc des Princes, Robben offered no comment when asked by a reporter post-match whether the side was fully behind coach Carlo Ancelotti, indicating that there may be divisions at the Allianz Arena.
Two Brazilians were on target for Paris Saint-Germain in the form of Dani Alves and Neymar, with Edinson Cavani’s goal sandwiched between the two.
