“Who’d blame him” – Liverpool fans react to 23-year-old star’s potential move to direct rivals

Speculation linking Emre Can to an Anfield exit has served as an accurate insight into the honest opinions fans hold of the German.

The Liverpool star’s true value divided supporters at the beginning of the year, but his rise to form since then appears to have convinced Reds he is a player worth keeping hold of.

Those wishes may be futile, however, with recent reports suggesting Can will leave when his contract expires next summer.

Liverpool’s refusal to insert the release clause the 23-year-old is demanding seemingly marks the basis of why talks over an extension have broken down.Whilst interest from Juventus has been common knowledge on Merseyside for some time, details of Manchester City’s pursuit are still being processed.

The Premier League leaders are now reportedly leading the race for Can’s signature, much to the disgust of supporters. Rumours have even sailed as far to suggest Can himself is waiting for the move to the Eithad.

Supporters have reacted angrily to the matter, with some criticising the former Bayer Leverkusen man and others urging Liverpool to continue negotiations.

One fan even justified any ambitions Can may have to play for City.
