Numerous fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed an article regarding the wage demands of reported summer transfer target Erling Haaland.
According to David Ornstein’s article for The Athletic, Manchester City – as well as other interested clubs – have been informed that signing the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund centre-forward this summer would “break wage structures across Europe”, with salary demands way in excess of what City’s top earners currently take home being communicated.
However, after City Xtra relayed the news of Haaland’s reported wage demands on Twitter, some Man City fans flocked to have their say on the matter, with many feeling that the Norway international should not be signed this summer if the reports regarding his demands are indeed true. One irate supporter even blasted the Norwegian as an “overrated fraud” despite his exceptional goal return.
Do you think City should make Haaland their top earner?
So, what exactly did these Manchester City fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding Erling Haaland’s wage demands?
“Really wanted him but if that’s the case all of a sudden Isak and Ings and Andre Silva are looking really great players.”
“Bro he can rot at Dortmund then.”
“We’re good. He can go wherever.”
“We don’t want this overrated fraud.”
“Honestly don’t want him. Don’t want to sign mercenaries – you can never truly attach yourselves to such players.”
“Let’s be real, it is not happening. Andre Silva would be a better option in our budget.”
