Numerous fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed a report that claims City are interested in signing Danny Ings this summer.
According to the report by Sky Sports, with Sergio Aguero’s future at City being a “major doubt” due to the 32-year-old’s contract expiring at the end of the season, identifying the Argentine’s replacement has become one of Pep Guardiola’s “top priorities” prior to the summer transfer window.
As a result, the Premier League leaders have been linked with Borussia Dortmund centre-forward Erling Haaland. However, with clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea also thought to be keen on a move for the 20-year-old, Sky Sports claimed that City have identified Ings as a “more attainable” option.
After City Xtra relayed this report on Twitter, many fans of Manchester City flocked to have their say on the matter, with plenty seeming furious at the prospect of their club targeting the Southampton striker instead of Haaland.
Would Ings be a good signing for City this summer?
So, what exactly did these Manchester City fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding their club’s interest in Danny Ings?
“Typical Txiki. We will not sign Haaland with that kind of mentality. Remember Boateng, Toure, Silva, Aguero and co. – it was Gary Cooks who did that. Txiki doesn’t have the skill, except paying the release clause on signing players from that statue. Yeah, we will get Ings.”
“No please, if we can’t get Haaland then go get Daka.”
“If Ings is what we bring in to replace Aguero I’m done.”
“No offence to Ings, but please tell me this is a joke.”
“This is a joke.”
“This is a serious joke, right? How old is Haaland? Do we need to pool old guards, like really?”
“Get in the bin.”
