“Just runs about looking busy” – Some Man City fans are not keen on deal for Spurs player

Some Manchester City fans on social media have reacted negatively to reports that Pep Guardiola is plotting a move for Harry Winks.

Winks certainly does not strike one as the stereotypical Jose Mourinho midfielder but the England international has been a regular in the side since the Portuguese coach arrived at Spurs in November.

However, the 24-year-old, like many others in the Spurs squad, was riddled with inconsistencies this season.

The Sun claimed that Mourinho is open to letting Winks leave the club for around £40million and reinvesting that money into other targets as City eye a move for the midfielder.

The reaction to the news from some Spurs fans was quite mixed, with some admitting that they would snap City’s hands-off for £40m while others insisted that the club would be crazy to consider selling the academy graduate.

However, barring a few City fans who thought Winks could be a decent addition, many dismissed the idea and suggested that the club needed to be aiming higher.

I actually think Winks would be perfect for City’s system as there are very few who are as good as him in retaining possession in tight areas and helping transition the ball from defence into midfield. He could seamlessly fit into the Rodri/Gundogan role and thrive but I cannot see us selling him, due to our difficulties in meeting the homegrown criteria.
