Revelation of the Stade de Reims for a year and a half, Boulaye Dia will continue his career at Villarreal and the transfer will bring happiness to the Champagne club.
Boulaye Dia will eventually evolve in La Liga! The striker of the Reims stadium had revealed himself in Ligue 1 in 2019 by landing out of nowhere, since he was for a time an electrician playing at the same time in Jura Sud (he is a native of Ain). In the sights of OM and even very close to joining West Ham last January, the 24-year-old will take over the management of Villarreal.
According to RMC, the two clubs are close to an agreement and the Senegalese international will be transferred around 15 million euros. He will try to win alongside Gerard Moreno, the team leader, doing better than Paco Alcacer, not very bright since his arrival in Villarreal. Carlos Bacca, he has just gone free.
The Valencia community club, led by Unai Emery, finished 7th in La Liga but won the Europa League ahead of Manchester United (in that endless penalty shootout) and will play in the group stage of the Champions League. Aïssa Mandi, Francis Coquelin and Étienne Capoue are already working with the Yellow Submarine.
