Following Wolverhampton Wanderers’ failed attempt to sign Boulaye Dia from Salernitana last summer, there was an almost immediate fallout from which neither club nor player have recovered.

The striker rebelled against his own club for not accepting the move, and ended up being fined for it, creating a tense mood for the rest of the season.

Now as TuttoMercatoWeb features a fresh story on Dia, they point out ‘how much damage’ the failed transfer to Wolves has actually caused.

The outlet details every step that has led to this current situation between club and player. The first is the rejection to Wolverhampton’s offer, which resulted in the striker failing to show up for an away match.

There was also the injury which left him out of the Africa Cup of Nations in January. Then in February, he didn’t greet manager Fabio Liverani when getting substituted in a match against Inter Milan.

The situation got a lot more serious this weekend, as he refused to enter the match against Udinese in the second half. According to TMW, the ‘situation cannot be reconciled’ and Salernitana will keep him out of the squad ‘until June’.

That’s when they’ll finally accept his departure, and we’ll see whether Wolves would still be interested, although his attitude over the season may have burned a few transfer bridges along the way.
