Man Utd fans hit rock bottom after finding out summer target following Man City’s Champions League win

Man Utd fans hit rock bottom after finding out summer target following Man City’s Champions League win

Man Utd fans have had their say.

Manchester United fans have reacted to reports surrounding the club's latest transfer target following Manchester City's Champions League final win.

City completed the treble on Saturday night after beating Inter Milan 1-0 in Istanbul - replicating a feat achieved by United 24 years ago.

And while the blue side of Manchester has been preparing for the final, there has been uncertainty at Old Trafford surrounding a potential takeover of the club.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the ongoing takeover process is having an impact on what business United are able to do in the transfer window, although The Athletic say their budget will be £100 million regardless of any sale.

One area United will likely need to focus on is the goalkeeping department. Although David de Gea is in talks over signing a new contract, Nottingham Forest are keen on a move for Dean Henderson, and loanee Jack Butland is set to join Rangers.

After the final, The Sun's Alan Nixon reported that United are keen on a £30 million summer move for Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The interest, on the face of it, has plenty of logic behind it. Now an experienced England international and with over 200 Premier League appearances to his name, the 29-year-old could provide strong competition for De Gea.

An agile goalkeeper, Pickford is capable of spectacular saves, and has received praise from manager Sean Dyche for his form during Everton's run-in.

But a number of United fans aren't happy with the prospect of the England star moving to Old Trafford - and reacted as such on social media.

Man Utd fans react to Pickford interest

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "If this is a joke, please stop this."

Another added: "I didn't think this day could get any worse."

And a third supporter said: "I don't think Pickford is an upgrade on what we already have."

Meanwhile, a fourth fan exclaimed: "Not sure how that helps the build up issue, but okay."

Another wrote: "Ten Hag watched the Onana performance and said let's go for Pickford."

However, other fans supported the potential signing, with one stating: "If Ten Hag wants him, let him come. Plays well for England at the top stage and is great with the ball at his feet."

Another added: "Why is everyone acting like Pickford is a bad GK? I remember everyone reacting the same way when Arsenal wanted to sign [Aaron] Ramsdale."

And an Everton fan said: "Jordan Pickford is in top three goalkeepers in the league United be lucky to get him."
