Liverpool fans moan at news of £32.5m bid for Christian Benteke [Best Tweets]

On Thursday lunchtime it was widely reported that Liverpool were to activate Christian Benteke’s £32.5m release clause at Aston Villa.

Also linked to Manchester United, Christian Benteke would become Liverpool’s seventh striker joining Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings, Rickie Lambert, Divock Origi, Mario Balotelli & Fabio Borini.

Liverpool fans on social media were not best pleased as news broke that their club would be spending 2/3 of their £49m Raheem Sterling money on a 24 year old Aston Villa striker.

If it goes through, the deal will certainly have shades of the £35m Liverpool spent on Andy Carroll having just received £50m for Fernando Torres.

Christian Benteke has netted 41 goals during his three seasons in the Premier League and was in superb form under new Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood.
