Manchester City fans are far from happy after it was revealed Liam Delap is closing in on a loan move to Stoke City.
The Citizens are preparing for the new campaign as they look to back-up their Premier League title from last season with more silverware. However, at the moment, Pep Guardiola has just two strikers at his disposal, which explains their strong pursuit of England captain Harry Kane (The Telegraph).
One of those two forwards is Liam Delap. As per The Secret Scout (via si.com), Delap has visited Stoke’s training ground and is close to the Potters despite the lack of depth at the Etihad Stadium.
Last term, Delap scored 24 goals in 29 games for City’s youth side, while he also netted in the League Cup for the senior side (Transfermarkt).
Should Delap stay at City?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Delap news below
“Bad move, Brighton would have been better.”
“Shame. Would have liked him to play a part this season.”
“Worst deal ever”
“No, we dont even have a striker rn!!! How do we let our only striker out on loan?”
“It’s stupid to spend that amount on Kane who is prone to multiple injuries in a season while we can try a kid who is excellent at scoring. At least if he Delap fails we loose nothing but no Aguero 2.0 loading for a sum of money that can buy a club”
“It ruined John Guidettis career. I worry it will do the same”
In other news, Man City fans want to sign this left-back.
