Man City fans react as Ko Itakura set to join Borussia Monchengladbach for €4M

Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Ko Itakura is set to join Borussia Monchengladbach this summer.

Whilst the player is contracted to the Premier League champions, he hasn’t played for City, with his game time in recent years coming out on loan.

The latest temporary spell has been with Schalke in Germany, with Itakura starring as they won promotion back to the Bundesliga. However, with a £6m fee required to make the move a permanent one, it’s a deal they may not be able to afford.

That’s opened up the possibility for Itakura to go elsewhere. It was reported that the Manchester City loanee was now ‘considering’ proposals from several interested clubs who had a keen eye on his signature after an impressive personal season in the Bundesliga 2.

Newly-promoted Premier League duo, Fulham and Bournemouth as well as Bundesliga clubs such as Hoffenheim and Freiburg were claimed to be targeting his signing in the summer.

According to the latest information from SPORT1 journalist Patrick Berger, Ko Itakura is set to join Borussia Monchengladbach from Man City for a transfer fee in the region of €4M.

The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
