In 2014, he joined FC Barcelona B and made 28 appearances in the Segunda Division. On 16 December 2014 Diagne was called up to the main squad for a Copa del Rey match against SD Huesca but was not called into action by Luis Enrique in the 8–1 home routing. He once again made it to the bench against Elche in the return leg but unfortunately remain used. 

Dynamos have chosen to stick with manager Josep Gombau even after finishing eighth on the Indian Super League (ISL) table with 18 points from as many matches. It remains to be seen whether the Spaniard can turn it around in his second season with the Lions.
