‘Please get Pulisic’ – Man City fans on Twitter react to transfer reports

The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to their club’s six-man shortlist for a new winger. Pep Guardiola wants to bring in a new wingman to ease the pressure on both Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane as they prepare to defend their Premier League crown. According to The Daily Mail, Leon Bailey, Justin Kluivert, Eden Hazard, Christian Pulisic, Riyad Mahrez and Gelson Martins are all on the club’s list.

The Citizens propping our bar up all have a good idea of who they really want, who’s realistic and who they don’t want from the six-man target list. Eden Hazard has emerged as an overriding favourite amongst the fans, although with the Belgian currently plying his trade at Chelsea, one of City’s biggest Premier League rivals, it’s hard to see the Sky Blues recruiting Hazard in the summer, with Real Madrid a much more likely destination.

The most likely player on that list to be paying at The Etihad next season is Leicester City’s wantaway wide-man, Riyad Mahrez. The Algerian almost made a sensational swap in January, although the clubs couldn’t come to an agreement over the fee for the player, with a summer move now being much more likely. Although if Mahrez doesn’t move it wouldn’t be a surprise to see any of the others end up in Manchester, with most players of today’s generation desperate to play under a manager of Pep Guardiola’s calibre.
