Royale Union Saint-Gilloise CEO Philippe Bormans acknowledges that Victor Boniface is unlikely to remain at Les Unionistes for the upcoming season due to significant interest from multiple clubs.
Boniface, who joined Union SG from Bodø/Glimt in August 2022 for a transfer fee of two million euros, has played a pivotal role in the team’s successful campaign.
Union SG’s impressive performance has seen them reach the Europa League quarterfinals and secure a strong position to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, currently sitting second in the Pro League standings with 44 points, just one point behind Royal Antwerp.
With 16 goals and 11 assists in 48 appearances, Boniface has had a remarkable season, catching the attention of clubs in Germany, Spain, and France. Despite being under contract with Union SG until the summer of 2026, the likelihood of him staying appears slim according to Bormans.
Bormans, speaking to Het Belang van Limburg via voetbalnieuws, stated, “While never ruling out the possibility entirely, it seems highly improbable that Boniface will remain with us.”
He further emphasized the growing number of concrete offers from interested clubs, surpassing what can be counted on two hands. “I can no longer count the interested clubs that are concrete on two hands.”
If Boniface is sold for a minimum of ten million euros, it will break Royale Union Saint-Gilloise’s outbound transfer record, previously set by Deniz Undav when he moved to Premier League side Brighton & Hove in January 2022.
