Report: Ryan Christie could leave Celtic for £5m; Burnley lead race
Burnley lead the race to sign Ryan Christie with the Sunday People (8/8; page 57) reporting that Celtic could sell the midfielder for just £5 million this summer.
Christie is one of several Hoops stars with a question mark hanging over their future at Parkhead.
The Sunday People notes that his contract expires in the new year. And with that, a number of English sides have the 26-year-old on their radar.
According to the report, the Clarets lead the charge. Meanwhile, Southampton are also admirers.
And it is claimed that Leicester may make a move if £60 million-rated star James Maddison leaves.
The Sunday People (8/8; page 57) reports that the Celtic man could move for just £5 million.
Paying £5 million for Ryan Christie seems a no-brainer for Celtic star’s admirers
Like many Celtic players, Christie did not have the best year last season. Nevertheless, he is a very talented player.
So spending £5 million seems like a no-brainer, particularly for Burnley and the Saints.
Neither club has really got stuck into the transfer window as yet. So adding a player with his ability to make things happen in the final third would be a boost.
Obviously, he could soon be available on a free. But neither club will want to be playing catch up in the second-half of the campaign.
