Manchester City fans are far from happy after it was suggested they are interested in signing Umar Sadiq from Almeria this summer.
After a mixed season that saw them win the Premier League and the League Cup but also lose the Champions League final to Chelsea in Porto, there is likely to be plenty of business done by City this summer.
Things have already started with the exits of Sergio Aguero (fcbarcelona.com) and Eric Garcia to Barcelona, while the Citizens have also been heavily linked with Jack Grealish (talkSPORT) and Harry Kane (Sky Sports).
Now, it seems they have another forward player in their sights. As per AS, City want 24-year-old Sadiq, with Almeria looking for €30m (£25.8m) for his services. It has also been suggested they would loan him to Troyes in Ligue 1 next term and see him return to the squad the following campaign.
Would you like to sign Sadiq?
The City fans, though, are not too happy with this news. The link 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 Sadiq link
“If we do this we truly are a banter club”
“I hate it when we do this. I swear we buy them, loan them and forget we have them”
“What? We need a ready made striker now! Stop wasting money!”
“We must be sick why sign a player for 30m euros and send him on loan”
“no please don’t do this to me”
“30 million on a 24 year old that is being sent to Troyes? Yeah if we do this I’m finished”
