'I can no longer count the interested clubs' - Union SG CEO admits Boniface is a wanted man 

Royale Union Saint-Gilloise CEO Philippe Bormans has admitted that it seems unlikely that Victor Boniface will remain at Les Unionistes next season with several clubs interested in the services of the Nigerian striker. 


Boniface joined Union SG from Bodø/Glimt in August 2022 for a fee of two million euros, and he's one of the main reasons for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise's successful season.


Union SG reached the quarterfinals of the Europa League and are well placed to feature in next season's UEFA Champions League as they sit second in the Pro League standings with 44 points, one less than table toppers Royal Antwerp.


Boniface has had an outstanding season with a goal involvement of twenty seven (16 goals, 11 assists) in 48 appearances for Union SG, putting himself in the shop window in the process. 


It is known that clubs in Germany, Spain and France are fighting it out for the signature of Boniface who is contracted to Union SG until the summer of 2026.


"Whether there is even a one percent chance that Boniface will stay? Never say never, but it seems very unlikely to me," Bormans told Het Belang van Limburg, via voetbalnieuws.


"I can no longer count the interested clubs that are concrete on two hands,"


If Boniface is bought for at least ten million euros, he will break  Royale Union Saint-Gilloise's transfer record for an outbound transfer set by Deniz Undav when he left to join Premier League side Brighton & Hove in January 2022.
