A number of Manchester City fans have been reacting to the news that Antoine Griezmann’s agent is in good contact with the Premier League champions.
The Citizens are preparing for the new season as they look to recover from the disappointment of losing to Chelsea in the Champions League final in Porto six weeks ago. They need a new striker, having already lost Sergio Aguero to Barcelona during this transfer window.
City have been heavily linked with a move for Harry Kane (Sky Sports), but it seems that the Tottenham striker may not be accessible for Pep Guardiola (Sky Sports via ESPN). As such, they are looking at alternative targets, and one of those may be £54m-valued Griezmann (Transfermarkt), who plays for Barcelona.
According to journalist Shay Lugassi, Griezmann’s sister and agent Maud is in good contact with City after the 2018 World Cup winner was offered to the club last summer, when the Etihad Stadium outfit backed out due to his price being too high. However, given Barcelona’s financial situation, he could be available for a much lower cost.
Would you like to sign Griezmann?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one even happy to see Kevin De Bruyne being sacrificed if it meant getting Griezmann in.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Griezmann news
“This club will kill me.”
“If we cant get Kane, Lukaku or Haaland, he’s the next best option by far and he’s world class. Don’t understand why anyone would be against this signing if it even happens”
“Definitely take him.. quality player”
“Since we’re not getting Kane I’d rather have us get Griezmann not Ings”
“Great player by far world class, give him a chance to show in the Premier League and he just might show a few of you up!!!”
“Sell KDB then”
In other news, some Man City fans slammed this man’s comments.
