How 'fake news' put the transfer of a Ukrainian football player in limbo

Roman Zozulya Real Betis
Formerly of Real Betis, Roman Zozulya is suddenly without a club following unproven links to a neo-Nazi group in Ukraine.

MADRID -- This is a story about a Nazi symbol that isn't a Nazi symbol. A transfer that isn't really a transfer. A soccer player that, for the moment, isn't actually a soccer player.

It starts in Ukraine, with fear and blood and war. It comes to Spain, with anger and frustration and resentment. It involves politics. It might involve Russia. It involves a clandestine car ride through a back alley and a bizarrely un-clandestine meeting in a shopping mall food court.

Real Betis agree to end Roman Zozulya's Rayo Vallecano loan

Roman Zozulya Real Betis
Roman Zozulya initially signed a three-year contract with Betis after arriving from Dnipro last summer.
