Crystal Palace: Fans react to Christian Benteke update

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Christian Benteke update - Crystal Palace

Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to an update regarding striker Christian Benteke on social media.

Benteke is just one of a number of Palace players who are out of contract in a matter of weeks, however, it seems as if the Eagles are making a late attempt to keep hold of the forward.

According to Belgian outlet Het Laatste Nieuws, cited by Sports Witness, Palace have offered the 30-year-old a new two-year deal.

Do you think Benteke will accept Palace's offer?





The report claims that the ball is now in the Belgian’s court over whether he will stay at Selhurst Park.

Benteke, who Roy Hodgson described as ‘fantastic’ during his tenure as manager, ended the season in fine form. He scored seven times in his final 13 Premier League games of the 2020/21 season, and those displays seem to have done enough to persuade Palace to offer him a new deal.
