Manchester United fans react to reports about Roberto Firmino joining this summer

When reports from Brazil emerged and suggested Manchester Unite were going to sign Hoffenheim’s Roberto Firmino for €18m this summer, there was an explosion of conversation about him.

Not too many Man United fans had seen the 23-year-old play in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim last year but in an attacking role, he was one of their best players in what was an excellent season for him.

United hardly need strengthening directly in that position but buying players who seem superfluous hasn’t stopped United the club before – take Robin van Persie as a prime example of a club moving on

We wanted to see what United fans thought so ere’s what a few United fans had to say on the reports about Firmino:

A mixed bag of responses of sorts but the general consensus is clear – Firminho would be a steal at the €18m figure.

Overall, United fans were happy to see the Brazilian midfielder so heavily linked with a move to the point where reports say it will be completed soon.

What do you think about the potential signing of Firminho? Please let us know in the comments.

Later today we’ll be bringing you an article with the owner of the 1899 Hoffenheim blog to offer you some insight into how he played last season.
