Galatasaray have announced on Sunday evening the transfer of their striker Mbaye Diagne to Belgian football club Club Brugge on an initial one-year loan.
Diagne traveled to Belgium over the weekend to finalize his transfer to Anderlecht, however, a last minute offer from Club Brugge has seen the striker call off his move to Anderlecht and join their rivals Club Brugge instead.
Club Brugge will pay Galatasaray a loan fee of €3.35 million and will have the option to make Diagne’s loan permanent in exchange for €13 million before June 30, 2020.
Meanwhile, Club Brugge were also closing in on another signing from the Turkish Super Lig; Papis Cisse from Alanyaspor.
Despite Cisse and Club Brugge agreeing to terms, Alanyaspor have blocked the transfer from happening which meant Club Brugge were unable to complete a deal for Papis Cisse.
