Many Everton fans have been left reacting to a Transfer Deadline Day claim from Alan Myers on the future of Bernard.
As per a tweet from the sports news editor, the chances of the Brazil international moving abroad looks ‘very unlikely’ after he trained with the Goodison Park faithful on Monday.
Should Everton sell Bernard?
He was strongly linked with a move away from the Merseyside club before the deadline hits, but now it looks as if he may be staying.
It could be a missed opportunity for Carlo Ancelotti’s team in terms of getting some money for Bernard, given that they signed the 28-year-old on a free transfer and thus would have been able to make a profit on him.
However, to sell him without bringing in a replacement is very risky business and he could still have a place in the squad at the Toffees.
Everton fan reaction to Bernard news
These Blues seemed split on whether selling the winger would be a good idea, with one EFC supporter claiming that the news was ‘gutting’ to hear:
“No way we can let him go. Crying out for him at weekend”
“We can’t afford to let him go. It’s getting silly now. We’re thread bare as it is”
“Good news this”
“Whether he leaves or stays don’t matter he’s not good enough to get in to the starting 11 or influence games coming from the bench just fills a space on the bench! Had really high hopes when we signed him thinks he’s got a lot of quality it’s just not worked for him or us”
“Bit gutting that news. Average player on big wages”
