Boro face financial battle to secure Yannick Bolasie signing

Yannick Bolasie’s future at Middlesbrough is not certain. He joined the side in January on loan from Everton, but his contract with the Premier League side will expire this summer.

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock has revealed how difficult it will be for the club to sign Congolese winger Yannick Bolasie on a permanent deal this summer transfer window.

Bolasie signed for Boro in January on loan from Everton, where he had struggled for playing time. He has since performed well for Boro and the former Crystal Palace player will become a free agent this summer after his deal with Everton expires.

It’s likely that he will consider the different options on the table before deciding his future.

Middlesbrough want to make the move a permanent one, however, Warnock has revealed they are likely to face some difficulty with the deal due to financial reasons.

“He and Mendez haven’t played for months, and to have them, even from the bench, has been a real plus,” Warnock said.

“We’ll need to sign someone for both sides in the summer - we need left and right.”

“It’s whether - on the financial side, we’re able to put a package together.”

“We’ve just got to get through the last six games and see where we’re at.”

Bolasie has been linked with a move to Turkey in recent times. However, if he will consider signing for Middlesbrough it’s likely he might need to take a massive pay cut.
