Crystal Palace fans in disbelief at reports star striker could be sold this month
Christian Benteke has been linked with a move away from Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace fans have scoffed at suggestions that club record signing Christian Benteke could leave this month – less than six months after joining from Liverpool.
A report by the Daily Mirror suggests that Benteke could reluctantly be sold in January to generate funds to help boss Sam Allardyce strengthen his Palace squad for the second half of the campaign.
Benteke has scored eight goals in 18 Premier League games for Palace since joining in a club record deal, which was reportedly an initial £27m, with the potential for another £5m in add-ons.
But the former Aston Villa and Liverpool striker has not scored in five games, and has missed crucial penalties against both West Ham and Watford this season.
However, Palace fans have taken to social media to respond to the report, suggesting that they cannot see it happening, even if the club receive a bid of around £30m.
