‘He is definitely coming’, ‘It’s working in our Favor’ – Man City fans react as Marc Cucurella disappointed with Brighton Stance


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Marc Cucurella is reportedly disappointed with Brighton due to their hefty asking price.

The 23-year-old is believed to be Pep Guardiola’s primary target for the remainder of the summer window, as he looks to replace Arsenal-bound Oleksandr Zinchenko.

City have stepped up their efforts to recruit Cucurella, although as things stand there is still some distance between themselves and Brighton over a transfer fee for the Spaniard.

Brighton are reportedly demanding £50m for Cucurella, with Manchester City only willing to pay £30m, a similar fee they are to receive from Arsenal for Zinchenko.

Pep Guardiola side willing to increase their initial offer for Cucurella, but are prepared to walk away from the deal if Brighton refuse to lower their £50m valuation.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the lack of movement between the two sides has led to Cucurella becoming frustrated with Brighton.

Romano has stated that the Spanish defender is ‘now disappointed because of the high price tag’ his current employers have put on him.

This report shared on Twitter gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on the matter.
