Last week, a number of Newcastle United fans took to social media to urge their club to sell Ayoze Perez in this summer’s transfer window.
However, fast forward a few days, and the club’s supporters are now desperate for the Spaniard to stay at St James’ Park heading into the 2019-2020 campaign.
Perez has enjoyed easily his best season for Newcastle, finding the back of the net on 12 occasions in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old – speaking to Cadena SER – recently said that he would be open to leaving Rafael Benitez’s side this summer.
The initial reaction was for the fans to call for Perez to depart.
Check out the video below to see how Brazil fans reacted to being asked how Cristiano Ronaldo would perform for them in a hilarious prank by Pl>ymaker FC…
However, their tune has now changed.
Indeed, in response to a tweet posted by Perez following Newcastle’s 4-0 win at Fulham on Sunday afternoon, a number of supporters have urged the Spaniard to stay.
It is certainly an interesting transfer story to watch unfold during the next couple of months.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
