Manchester United fans are taking great joy in Liverpool’s failed move for Nabil Fekir, after Lyon announced he wouldn’t be joining the Reds this summer.
However, Lyon released a statement saying the deal was off on Saturday evening, leaving Liverpool fans gutted and their rival supporters in hysterics. The cause of the deal’s collapse is not yet known.
Fekir had a magical 2017/18 season, scoring 23 goals and contributing 9 assists in all competitions. He’s also set to star for France in the upcoming World Cup.
He could have caused serious damage to United and others in the English Premier League next season so it’s no surprise they are happy the deal is off.
Red Devils fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Liverpool always taking L’s, Fekir just dropped another one for them 😂😂😂 #mufc

If United put a pure banter bid in now and sign Fekir I will forgive the Glazers and never criticise them again #MUFC #😂😂😂
