Should be plan A— Smashi🐝⚽️💙 (@Smashi01) June 3, 2021
I really don’t mind if he becomes our plan A tbf— Gucciano O’Sheikh (@Gucciano17) June 3, 2021
Makes sense tbh as Haaland and Lukaku are not leaving this summer so he is the next best.— Arnav (@King_Kevin100) June 3, 2021
Bet you said something similar about Dias tbf. If Pep wants him, that’s good enough for me— Andy (@AndyP1693) June 3, 2021
Would be a shrewd buy and his style suits City. His link up play is good and he is a penalty box predator plus takes a good penalty. He would 30 goals per season for City. + good injury record.— Mark Saunders (@sandmark7) June 3, 2021
I was busy making noise about Kounde and Koulibaly last time and rubbishing Dias only to look like a fool later.If they have scouted him and seen him fit i will trust them..I see his numbers are quite good as well in the past season.I think he can do well with our insane supply— Cityzennn (@thecityzensfc) June 3, 2021
I dont mind buying him and then moving focus to Haaland next year. Also we do have Ferran, Jesus and Delap to fight for number 9 spot and not buying anyone at all can help them grow.— Adil Shaikh (@AdilSha41002424) June 3, 2021
