‘Please be true’, ‘Not again’ – These Cardiff City fans are torn over latest transfer speculation

Published

on

Cardiff City have been linked with a move for Rennes full-back Souleyman Doumbia, according to French outlet L’Equipe.

The 23-year-old would’ve been expecting more in his second season at the French club, but he’s made just one Ligue 1 appearance all season and now looks likely for the exit.

Although a loan-move is said to be preferred by Doumbia, whilst Cardiff are said to be tracking the Ivorian, along with Dutch side FC Utrecht and French outfit Angers.

It’d be Neil Harris’ first signing as Cardiff boss, and the news has got plenty of fans excited.

He began his career with PSG but was soon released, and signed for Italian side Bari in 2016. From there he went to Grasshopper Zurich in the Swiss league, before landing his move to Rennes in 2018.

He’s been capped for the Ivory Coast, and was once linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Here’s what Cardiff fans are saying on the rumours linking Doumbia with a move to South Wales:

Dale Rees: Please be true

Dave Micthell: What about a proven goal scorer at Championship level – Dwight Gayle is available

Mark Reed: Just sign someone in this window who can score goals

Ray Wilson: Smoke and mirrors typical from City

Matthew James Kirkham: Not again

Stephen Morgan: Can’t remember a January without conjecture and rumours, it’s getting a little monotonous to be honest.
