Crystal Palace: Fans react to Fenerbahce’s reported move for Benteke

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Fenerbahce’s reported move for Benteke - Crystal Palace

Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have flocked to Twitter to give their opinion on speculation rumouring Christian Benteke away from the club.

The Twitter account @CPFC_NEWS_HQ tweeted a report from Fanatik suggesting that Fenerbahce will bid a total of €6m (around £5.5m) for the Crystal Palace striker who has struggled of late.

He initially made a great impression at Selhurst Park, contributing an impressive 15 goals in his first campaign (Transfermarkt). However, since then it is has been a torrid time for the 28-year-old: he has played 47 games in the league in the past two campaigns and has only managed to grab four goals.

Having one year remaining on his contract (Transfermarkt), this could be the last chance Palace have to make any money from the Belgian, though they do have the option to extend by a year.

The response from the Palace fans has been a mixed bag. Some are fed up of Benteke not being able to put away his chances and want to cash in while they can; others believe that compared to the other strikers within the squad – Jordan Ayew, Connor Wickham and Alexander Sorloth – he is the outstanding candidate and therefore should not be allowed to leave.

Here are some of the best responses below…
