Celtic fans react to Porto's reported Olivier Ntcham interest
Some Celtic fans have taken to social media to react to Porto’s reportedly renewed interest in Olivier Ntcham.
According to the Scottish Sun, the Frenchman is subject to a £14 million bid. Furthermore, there are suggestions Chancel Mbemba will be going the other way on loan.
This is a potential deal which the club cannot refuse and the fans know it.
Best for both parties
The deal would get Celtic a massive amount of funds for a player not at his best this season. Furthermore, the Hoops will receive a much-needed centre-back at a good age.
The Portuguese giants made a failed bid in the summer for the 22-year-old midfielder.
Instead, the France under-21 international signed a new bumper deal with The Bhoys.
However, performances are well below par this season and not many will turn their nose up at a big money move.
Twitter reacts to Ntcham to Porto reports
As soon as the news hit late last night, Celtic fans posted their delight on Twitter.
Tbf…Ntcham has downed tools since Moussa left…the minute Porto came in with a bid he was hinting he wanted to go, his performances have dropped so dramatically, that its worth taking the money and also improving the weakest part of your squad

I know we got a lot of money. I know we just signed a new contract but just saying that if Porto want Ntcham and if that is in his mind then sell him. Not saying it’s gonna change anything.

If Porto want Ntcham in this window, sell him the now. Freezes up money to get a few players. I rather sell Ntcham now than the summer because he is too slow, takes forever the pass the ball, passes backwards and gives the ball away many times.

If 14 plus a defender for Ntcham I’ll carry him on my back over land and sea to Porto myself

I rate Ntcham massively, and think on his day he is a brilliant player, but if that "bid" that Porto have supposedly made is true, then it is a very tempting one and would surely be a hard one to say no too…😐🤔

If the rumours are true about Porto offering 14 million plus Chancel Mbemba, i’ll drive him to the airport and make sure he gets there safely. Ntcham started well at celtic but not seen interest lately

The fans are clear on Ntcham move
Fans seem to be united on where Ntcham’s next destination is.
The money seemed to be enough but with Mbemba included then it is definitely an offer Celtic can’t refuse.
The Hoops have an abundance of options in the middle so the player won’t be a big loss.
It’s up to the two clubs now to decide his fate and Celtic should listen to the fans on this one.
