‘It Cannot Be True’ ‘Ridiculous Rumour’ Fans On Twitter Are Not Having Claims Celtic Could Splash Out £25m On Striker

Reports in Portugal claim that Moussa Marega will definitely be leaving Porto this summer.

Most have assumed that the striker will be moving to an English Premier League club such as West Ham, but a Twitter photo of a Celtic shirt with Marega’s name on it has been doing the rounds:

Subsequently, there has been talk that the Hoops could swoop in for the Mali international with a bid of £25m, but supporters don’t believe the rumours for one minute:

Marega’s goalscoring record in Portugal for Porto is excellent. He has scored 21 goals and laid on 11 assists in 45 matches this season.

However, considering he would cost a huge transfer fee, any deal would presumably have to include a Celtic player or two for a transfer to go ahead.

Even then, the likelihood of the Celtic board approving such a bid for a player who is 28 years of age seems very low indeed.
