Twitter reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe & Erling Haaland transfer madness

Well, that was an eventful early afternoon wasn't it?

In the space of a few hours we had a swathe of transfer news that has the potential to transform the face of European football.

First came confirmation, initially from the media and then from Max Allegri himself, that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Juventus. The legendary forward is now edging closer to a move to Manchester City and although the deal is not yet done, Ronaldo is willing to take a paycut to make sure it happens.

Still, when you're currently earning £600,000-per-week that's hardly impressive.

While City fans were dancing from the rooftops following the Ronaldo news, rival Manchester United supporters were trying to come to terms with CR7 wearing sky blue this season.

Some were faring better than others, but they were soon handed a boost when it was reported that United had in fact joined the race for his signature.

Soon after that development in the Ronaldo transfer saga we got another piece of massive news.

Apparently, Paris Saint-Germain are eyeing up a sensational swoop for Erling Haaland as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, should he seal a move to Real Madrid.

90min understands that Borussia Dortmund have laughed off notions of their star man leaving with just days to go until the close of the transfer window. However, PSG could test their resolve with a huge bid anyway and the news incited quite the reaction on social media.

The three potential deals are the latest blockbuster deals in what will surely go down as one of the best transfer windows ever.

Don't be surprised if every afternoon is as dramatic as this one as we edge closer to deadline day.
