‘Are we broke?’, ‘Why are we lowballing’ – Man City fans react as club make ‘insufficient’ formal offer for Sergio Gomez


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims the club have made a formal offer for Anderlecht star Sergio Gomez as they step up their hunt for a new left-back.

Pep Guardiola and co have been targeting Marc Cucurella for several weeks but negotiations between Brighton and the Premier League champions have allegedly ended, with the Citizens required to increase their offer if they wish to re-open talks with the Seagulls.

The 24-year-old is looking more likely to join Chelsea in the ongoing window and Manchester City have started identifying alternative options.

Belgian daily Het Nieuwsblad reported on Tuesday that the Premier League champions have begun talks with the Jupiler Pro League side to sign Gomez, after pulling out of the race for Marc Cucurella.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws as relayed by Sport Witness, Manchester City have made a formal offer for Sergio Gómez. RSC Anderlecht find it ‘insufficient’ and are aiming for at least €15M.

It’s claimed that the player is ‘charmed’ by the Man City project, with the chance to be part of the first team or be loaned out elsewhere.

The report shared on Twitter gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters.
