Sheffield United fans react as Celtic eye George Baldock
A number of Sheffield United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports Celtic want George Baldock this summer.
The Daily Record has claimed that Ange Postecoglou wants the 28-year-old as he looks to bolster his defensive ranks at Parkhead.
The Hoops only have Anthony Ralston in that position. Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Abd Elhamed have left the club this year. Meanwhile, Jonjoe Kenny’s loan spell looks unlikely to lead to any further deal.
The report notes Celtic wanted Baldock in 2019. However, they failed on that occasion to lure him away from Bramall Lane.
And it seems that many of the Blades fans on social media are hoping that they have a similar level of success this time around.
Plenty have taken to Twitter to insist that Sheffield United must not sell the full-back. At the very least, some want £10 million.
Baldock – who many Celtic fans want signed – has been an integral part of their success in recent years. And it appears that many of the supporters believe he will be hugely important as they look to bounce back from relegation at the first attempt.
‘Keep him’: Sheffield United fans hope Celtic fail in Baldock pursuit
Some believe that he is too vital to Slavisa Jokanovic’s side moving forward. And thus, they hope Celtic are repelled this summer.
Here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
No chance he goes to Scotland then, we won’t accept less than 15

Gotta find a way to av both George’s defensive ability and Bogle’s attacking prowess in the same match day 11. Those two down that right hand flank could absolutely take the mick at this level! Anything less than 10m is pointless cos we wouldn’t be able to adequately replace him.

We cannot afford to lose baldock, absolute quality player who will kill the championship. Bogle has potential but not in georges league at this stage
