Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will undergo a trial at Rayo Vallecano
Mathieu Flamini, 33, is currently without a club after being released by Crystal Palace at the end of last season.
He will look to resume his career in Spain, though, with Radio MARCA reporting that he will arrive in Madrid in the next few days after being offered a trial by Spanish second-tier side Rayo Vallecano.
Flamini has recently revealed what life is like as a free agent
He said: “Every morning, I am still waking up and I am 100 per cent committed to football. But, at the moment, I am waiting for the right opportunity.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have received many offers from this country and Europe but I want the right project.
The situation is straight- forward. It is not about just the club but a project, something that can stimulate me. To me, the project is more important.”
It seems that “project” could well be to help Rayo Vallecano rise into La Liga – they are currently in eighth spot in the Segunda Division.
