Get the Partey started: Man United fans are loving Thomas Partey rumours

Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the latest news regarding Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, and the majority are keen on prospect of seeing him in a United shirt.

It has been reported that there is a €50m (£42.7m) release clause in the contract of the Ghana international, who has excelled in a central midfield role under Diego Simeone at Atletico this season – he has three goals and three assists to his name in La Liga.

He is also an astute dribbler and has the ability to break the lines with some incisive passing, so it’s no surprise that United fans on Twitter are getting excited over his potential arrival…
