Man Utd fans react to interest in former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can

Such is the rivalry between the two sides, it’s incredibly rare to see a player who has featured for either Manchester United or Liverpool then go onto play for the other.

The last, high-profile example to do just that was Michael Owen, when he indirectly made his way from Anfield to Old Trafford over a decade ago.

And now, it could be the turn of Emre Can to do just that. According to Sky Sports, United are considering making a swoop for the now Juventus midfielder in January, and that the Bianconeri are looking to receive a fee in the region of £35m.

The Germany international’s situation in Turin became slightly more complicated when he was surprisingly left out of their Champions League squad this season – a situation that he publicly admitted would have seen him leave the club had he known about it much earlier.

After hearing their club’s reported interest in the former Liverpool man, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.

Many supporters of the Manchester side appeared to throw their backing behind a potential move, and insisted he would make for a great replacement for Nemanja Matic – the 6 foot man has career averages of 2.4 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game.
