Will Hassane Bandé (23) return to Belgium after four years abroad? Well, if it depends on Beerschot. In their search for offensive reinforcements, the former striker of KV Mechelen is high on the wish list of the relegant.
Bandé himself certainly sees a return to the Belgian competition, but a deal is not yet in the pipeline. A major stumbling block is the price tag that Ajax still puts on the striker. The Amsterdammers are still asking 700,000 euros for the Burkinabe international. A piece of cake compared to the 8.25 million euros that Ajax paid to KV Mechelen four years ago, but an amount that is currently too high for Beerschot. In the past one and a half season, Bandé was loaned to NK Istra in Croatia, where he scored eight goals in 50 games.
