Patrick Vieira is on the verge of taking over at Crystal Palace and could have up to £80m to spend this summer, according to The Daily Mail.
And, as to be expected, a number of Eagles fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
It looks set to be third time lucky for Steve Parish and the Palace hierarchy when it comes to finding Roy Hodgson’s successor.
Thoughts on Palace's swoop for Vieira?
I'm more than happy!
We could have done so much better!
The Eagles came close with Nuno Espirito Santo and Lucien Favre, but it seems as if Vieira will be the man through the door at Selhurst Park.
He’ll have a busy few weeks before the start of the new season, with a significant player rebuild required.
The new Palace manager, according to The Daily Mail, is expected to have as much as £80m to spend on new players in the transfer window.
Palace fans react
These Palace supporters were stunned at the claim…
“Can’t believe this. Would’ve thought if Favre was offered a kitty of £80m he’d of taken the job”
“Where’d we get 80 million”
“Must of mistyped that”
