Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims the Premier League champions are set to battle Newcastle United for French attacker Nabil Fekir this summer.
The French international was one of the best attackers in Ligue 1 during his time with Olympique Lyonnais and was on the radars of some of the continent’s best clubs.
With Bernardo Silva linked with a move away from the Etihad, Fekir name has come up as a possible replacement and a move could be on should the former end up moving.
According to Fichajes, Premier League champions Manchester City have entered the race to sign 29-year-old Real Betis playmaker Nabil Fekir, a target for Newcastle United.
This represents a challenge for Newcastle, who could do with attacking reinforcements of their own.
The report shared on Twitter gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters.
“Not a chance City are interested at that age.”
“29 year old to replace who? Silva? Maybe KDB? Isn’t it better to get a young potential player and groom him when you have all these experienced players around him. I don’t reject the quality of Fekir but it feels like a bit short term. I can’t see how he fits with his profile..”
“Actually an insane midfield depth if that’s the purpose but that means less minutes for foden in midfield, can’t be a Bernardo replacement though.”
“If he’s a Bernardo Silva replacement, that’s ridiculously bad business”
“City hardly sign anyone in his late 20s especially under Pep.”
