Many Celtic supporters have been talking about the latest tweet from Fabrizio Romano that emerged on social media.
Romano recently tweeted a transfer update involving the Hoops, confirming that Carl Starfelt will join the club on a permanent basis this summer. The Bhoys will pay a fee of €5 million (£4.2 million) to sign the Swede from Rubin Kazan, but the official announcement will come in the next few days.
Is Starfelt a replacement for Ajer?
26-year-old Starfelt is reportedly seen as a replacement for Kristoffer Ajer, who could be heading to Brentford. Starfelt is said to be waiting for his visa and because of government restrictions, he is waiting to discover when he could travel to Scotland to complete the move.
What did Celtic fans make of this news?
“I bloody hope so, he is clearly needed.”
“We’ve stopped leaking to the s*n and are now leaking everything to @FabrizioRomano. What a job Dom McKay is doing!”
“You love to see it. Wonder what’s causing the delay on announcing?“
These Celtic fans are buzzing about this news and they seem keen to see Starfelt in Hoops colours soon.
Since Starfelt is 26 and has quite a bit of first-team experience, he might be able to become a regular quickly at Celtic.
So replacing Ajer with an experienced centre-back is the right choice from the club, especially considering that they have to face Midtjylland in a crucial Champions League qualifier and having Starfelt in the side for at least one leg may be a boost for the Bhoys.
