OTHER According to Mbaye Diagne, Anderlecht never directly contacted him for a transfer. "They only spoke to Galatasaray, never to me." According to Michael Verschueren, this is incorrect. He proved this by showing Het Nieuwsblad Whatsapp messages that he exchanged with Diagne's agent.
"Anderlecht never called me. They tried to do everything through agents. Club called my own agent. Anderlecht never did that", Diagne claims in Het Nieuwsblad.
The newspaper contacted Verschueren to get this confirmed. Verschueren said that it was wrong and showed the newspaper messages that he exchanged with Daniele Boaglio, the agent of Diagne. In those messages it is clear that Anderlecht and Boaglio had made an appointment to travel to Brussels for Purple & White.
Het Nieuwsblad also contacted Club Brugge for an explanation, but the West Flemish did not want to respond.
