Galatasary Track Diané

Monday 30 June 2008 by Sagesse

Unhappy PSG forward Amara Diané is being tracked by Turkish club Galatasary according to reports in le Parisien…

Unwilling to spend any more time with PSG Amara Diané launched an angry attack on the club last Friday. Head coach Paul Le Guen’s reticence to start matches with the Ivorian was blamed as one of the reasons for Diané’s malcontent. This frustration was only augmented by the attitude of the board who proposed an asking price of €10 million for the 11 goal-forward.

Diané begged PSG to drop their asking price and it seems that this plea may not have fallen on deaf ears. According to local paper le Parisien PSG have accepted an offer from Turkish side Galatasary for the 25 year-old forward.

No price is quoted by the paper however it is believed that Diané’s wage demands could prove a major stumbling block towards securing the deal.

Diané featured in every league match for PSG last term but remains unhappy that he is not considered one of the first picks for Paul Le Guen. Quick with the ball at his feet and possessing an ability to commit and beat defenders Diané is one of the most dangerous forwards in Ligue 1. Consistency, particularly in front of goal, remains an issue.

With defensive midfielder Didier Digard poised for a move to Middlesbrough in the next few hours it leaves President Charles Villeneuve with a number of players to find before the start of the season.

Claude Makélélé and Robert Pires have already turned down the approaches of their Parisian suitors while many of the big names PSG used to be able to attract will be uncertain of joining a club with such a poor recent record.
