Celtic fans aren’t pleased at such an unwelcome development, as these social media responses show, with a range of gripes including the timing of the story – the Bhoys face Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday night – the potential transfer fee and indeed the likelihood of Edouard actually moving to Serie A.
First, here’s what some of the Twitterati think of it.
The Sun’s story got short shrift from this guy.
Some people think the price is just ridiculously low as well …
The reaction on Facebook was just as dismissive, even angry – and there was more discussion of the likely fee.
One fan even suggested reasons why Edouard himself may not entirely fancy a move there …
Celtic fans are seemingly in no mood to see another top star depart, especially when they have lost Kieran Tierney over the course of the summer, which is unsurprising considering Edouard has nabbed six goals and five assists already this term.
The sale of another top player might bring in huge sums of money, but it would unlikely be a popular move. Right now fans are more angry with the media than they are upset over the prospect of losing Edouard, but the board will find themselves with questions to answer if January comes around and a deal is sanctioned.
