How Twitter reacted to Manchester City’s record-breaking signing of Tottenham’s Kyle Walker

Written by

Manchester City have added another big signing to their side. The Citizens had already spent money on Bernardo Silva from Monaco and Benfica’s Ederson, and now they have raided Tottenham for one of their stars.

Right-back Kyle Walker becomes the world’s most expensive defender after City purchased the Englishman in a deal worth up to £53 million, according to The Guardian.

After playing a key role in Tottenham’s second-place finish last season, Walker leaves Mauricio Pochettino to join another world-class manager in Pep Guardiola.

The Spanish coach let both his right-backs, Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta, leave at the end of their contract, so it will please him that an energetic full-back has arrived.

Walker, who spoke to Manchester City’s official website, said: “I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started. Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level.”

Txiki Begiristain, the Club’s Director of Football, added: “Kyle is a fine full-back, one capable of producing quality at both ends of the pitch. We’ve followed his progress at Tottenham and have been really impressed by how he has developed. He is now one of the best right-backs in the Premier League and justifiably an England regular.”

With such elation over the signing coming from the club, how did Twitter react to the news?
