TRANSFERS We write it with pain in our hearts, but there is a very good chance Julian Duranville will leave Anderlecht this week. Indeed, it would even be the best thing for Anderlecht. Why: the winger does not want to re-sign. The sooner he leaves, the more money he still brings in.
Het Nieuwsblad wrote that Borussia Dortmund will make a €10 million plus bonuses bid for Duranville before the end of this month. From France, Lyon, Rennes and Monaco are showing interest. Duranville and his entourage, meanwhile, have decided not to extend his contract with Anderlecht, which expires in 2024.
A January transfer is therefore imminent. With pain in our hearts, we even have to write that that is the best solution. Next summer, Duranville will already be worth a lot less on the transfer market, as he will only be under contract for one more year. Moreover, there is the young flank attacker's injury sensitivity. His last game dates from 23 October, since then he suffered two injuries. The fact that he plays in a team that is not running will also not do his market value any good in the coming months.
Given the current financial situation, Anderlecht cannot afford to pass up a top prize.
