Lots of Manchester City fans were unimpressed with the latest rumours linking Mikel Oyarzabal with a move to the Etihad Stadium as Leroy Sane’s replacement.
Man City are pending the departure of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich and are willing to pay Real Sociedad winger, Mikel Oyarzabal’s €75m release clause.
City have already contacted the player’s environment to test his intentions.

AS report that the Real Sociedad winger is in line to replace Sane this summer if the German winger makes the move from the Premier League champions to Bayern Munich as being reported by the Manchester Evening News.
With a reported release clause of €75 million (£68 million), a move for Oyarzabal would eclipse the club-record fee City paid this summer for Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri (per the Guardian), and City fans quickly took to social media to object to the move for the Spanish international winger as some were unconvinced the attacker could replace Sane at the club.
Here is what a few fans had to say on Twitter about the rumours…
We are replacing Leroy with a man whose name sounds like a Kebab shop for €75m
I cba with this club if true

Everton or Dembele or no one.

I’m still hoping Sané doesn’t move but… This as a replacement?? Rather throw that money we get on Koulibaly instead. The defence has cost us in key games more than anything else. And it will again if we don’t sort it out soon. You’ve seen signs in pre season.

Oyarzabal scored 14 goals last season for Real Sociedad as well as assisting a further four for the Basque Country club.
