Mbaye Diagne has inadvertently leaked his transfer to Turkish Super Lig giants Galatasaray.

The 27-year-old mistakenly uploaded a picture of him on Instagram posing in a Galatasaray jersey ahead of the Turkish club making formal his acquisition.

Diagne has been linked all summer to swap Kasimpasa for a new employer which potentially included English Premier League side, Chelsea.

The Blues had a €10m proposal overlooked by Kasimpasa insisting the fee lodged for the player’s services does not meet their €15m valuation of the Senegal international.

All other EPL clubs have been mooted to be keeping tabs on the situation however, it appears Galatasaray have gazumped the negotiation process.

A deal in excess of €15m has been reportedly finalized in principle, pending the striker undergoing a medical and unveiling to mark the completion of the transfer.

However, prior to all these Diagne, apparently overwhelmed by excitement, inadvertently posted a picture of him posing in Galatarasay colors, hinting his move there.


The former Juventus acquisition is seen smiling enthusiastically in the viral image with other Turkish sites suggesting the final touches to the deal had been done.

Mbaye, until his recent 20-goal feat in 20 games, was an unknown player trying to break through into the game.

Gaffer Aliou Cisse decided against his inclusion in his World Cup squad citing the league he played (the Chinese Super League) this led to transfer to Turkey where he now hopes he’ll earn a place in the Taranga Lions’ roster bound for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, Cairo.
