Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the latest reports which shed some light on the future of six players at the club with contracts expiring in the summer.
According to the Evening Standard, and tweeted out by @cpfc_xtra, Andros Townsend has held early talks over an extension but remains undecided on his future. Meanwhile Gary Cahill and Scott Dann are expected to be given new deals. Christian Benteke, Mamadou Sakho and Patrick van Aanholt are the favourites to be let go. After hearing this news, one fan called this update ‘pathetic’.
It is a crazy situation that the club find themselves in. If you include the loan of Michy Batshuayi expiring, the club currently have seventeen players whose contracts expire in June 2021 (Transfermarkt).
Therefore the Eagles need to be making decisions immediately on the future of their players so that they can have a plan and structure for next season.
With the six players mentioned in the report all key for the squad this campaign, they will either have to be signed on again before they can leave on a free, or the club have to scout in new replacements, which is never easy.
Here is how fans reacted to the news:
“Keeping Dann but getting rid of Benteke makes no sense.”
“Nah I’m screaming, although we need a clear out, we are keeping all the rubbish and letting go of the decent players”
“Joke of a club if we keep Cahill and Dann but not Benteke”
“Never forgiving the club if tekkerz goes”
