Celtic agree “record fee” with City to get Paddy for 10 in a row (And he will wear number 7)

Celtic are willing to pay a club record fee of £7m if it keeps Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts at the club for another 4 years. 

Brendan Rodgers will even sacrifice other transfer targets, such as John McGinn and James McCarthy, if he has to use the bulk of transfer kitty on keeping the England U21 international at Celtic Park for another tilt at the Champions League in the short term and a potential 10 in a row in the long term.

Sources have reportedly confirmed discussions between the two clubs have taken place with an initial fee of £6.8m being agreed with another £2.2m on add ons, depending on Champions League appearances and full England caps, and 25% of any future sell on fee.

The players ambition to play in the English Premier League could potentially scupper any move although it’s believed he is keen to remain in Glasgow where he has flourished in the last couple of years.

Rodgers had been contemplating bids for four players including Everton’s McCarthy and Hibs McGinn an unamed defender and Nigerian forward, however the end of season form of the likes Dedrick Boyata, Callum McGregor, Leigh Griffiths, and of course Roberts himself, the Celtic boss will be feeling more confident in the current team than he maybe would have been earlier in the season. And it looks now like he is willing to side step the bulk of his targets to keep the Englishman at the club.

Although the Parkhead club are still keeping a close interest in Roberts’s England U21 team mate Dominic Solanke.

The Chelsea forward has in been on loan to the Dutch Eridevisie for the past season, scoring 16 goals in total, and champions Feyenoord are reportedly also preparing a bid along with several English Premier League clubs.
