‘Clever Deal From Us’ ‘He’s Defo Not Worth That Money’ Celtic Fans Discuss Romano’s Latest Transfer Update

Celtic have offered €3m (£2.7m) for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors striker Cho gue-Sung, but they have included a sell-on clause in their bid, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Cho’s current team will be due 50% of any future fee that is worth €6m (£5.3m) or lower, but Romano claims Minnesota United are also in the running, with the MLS side willing to pay €2m more upfront:

Supporters on Twitter are split on whether Cho is worth all of the effort, especially as he is likely to be an understudy for Kyogo Furuhashi:

It’s clear that the Hoops really want Cho, considering they are prepared to include such a generous sell-on clause in the deal. You do feel that, despite Minnesota making a bigger offer, the player will favour a switch to Scotland.

The South Korean international has expressed a preference for making a move to Europe so, unless Mainz return with another bid, or Rangers firm up their interest, it looks as if Celtic are in pole position for his signature.
