Giannelli Imbula in the middle of France-Belgium international status battle

According to L’Equipe, Belgian national coach Marc Wilmots has spoken with Marseille central midfielder Giannelli Imbula about playing for Belgium as his international allegiance of choice.

The Belgian-born Frenchman is understood to have rejected the opportunity for now, but, speaking to La Dernière Heure:

“I have watched their matches a little bit at the World Cup. I know this team sufficiently and I am open to Les Diables.”

The player has of course been a crucial individual in the France U21s setup in the past two years.
