But as on a last day of transfer window, a turnaround occurred on Friday night: the striker did not pass medical tests and the French club decided to no longer follow up on his three-year proposal. contract he offered to Dimata. In Anderlecht, we do not confirm and we speak of a slight disagreement but it seems that the cause is medical. At issue: his knee. A few weeks ago, the Belgian player returned after an 18-month absence and several knee interventions. According to the tests carried out by the Dijon club, all the signals are not therefore green.
Friday morning, however, everything was in good shape: Dijon had returned to the charge after a first refusal by Dimata, Anderlecht was satisfied to recover five million euros or practically his investment and the player who left his status as second striker behind Nmecha in the Sporting to try to obtain his stripes of holder in Dijon. The neo-Devil had even made the trip to his new home.
But things got complicated following the passage of the traditional medical examination. At the beginning of the evening, the management of Dijon decided to end the process. A news that will not surprise everyone on the side of Neerpede. Despite his return to Core A and his two league goals, some people had and still have doubts that Landry Dimata could return to his best level.
Miazga arrives at RSCA
The French competition has also been very attracted by the Anderlecht core in recent days. This week, Stade Rennes, an ambitious club that will play in the Champions League groups this season, made an offer of more than 20 million euros for Jérémy Doku. A significant amount but considered insufficient for Sporting. Management requires 30 million to let go of its nugget which has made a very good start to the season with two goals and four assists. So it did not go unnoticed. To see if Rennes or another club meets the requirements of the RSCA by Monday midnight.
A period that Anderlecht will not have to use until the end to find his new central defender. Sporting have reached an agreement with Chelsea for the no-option loan of Matt Miazga, a 25-year-old US international. In Belgium, he will be on his fourth loan since arriving in London in the summer of 2016. He was already sent to Vitesse Arnhem, Nantes and Reading last season.
