After Yannick Bolasie’s loan move to Aston Villa was cut short earlier this year, Everton allowed the winger to join Anderlecht on another temporary deal until the end of the season.
Earlier this week, the DR Congo international spoke to Het Laatste Nieuws and explained the ‘financial situation’ could be a ‘stumbling block’ for him to continue with the Jupiler Pro League side.
On the other hand, Anderlecht technical director Michael Verschueren refused to suggest if his side are planning to extend the 29-year-old’s stay at the club for next season.
Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been appointed as the Belgian club’s player-manager and the Toffees owned player gave an interview to DH, explaining he would like to meet Anderlecht’s new boss.
“We are still here because our children are finishing school. But you never know. I do not say no to RSCA,” the Everton owned player said.
“I would like to meet Vincent Kompany, I know him, and I think he can do a great job, and he has seen Manchester City’s journey to the top. Has experience to succeed.”
When further questioned if his big salary will be a problem for Anderlecht, Bolasie said: “Probably. Anyway, it’s Everton who will decide. I had fun in Anderlecht, thank you for the time I was playing, and sorry for the sixth place, I did my best.
“I scored six goals, but I would have liked to qualify Anderlecht for Europe… I do not regret my decision, Lukaku was right to advise me to go to Anderlecht.
“The players were very respectful to me, and I hope to have helped young people like Yari, Doku, Alexis and Seb, and maybe a season without a European cup is going to be good, sometimes you have to take a step backwards to make two ahead.”
It’s evident that Anderlecht do not have the financial muscle to pay Bolasie what he is currently earning at Goodison Park, but with Kompany’s presence, the club could push for another loan move.
