Best Twitter reactions to Chris Smalling’s reported £120,000-a-week contract

Jose Mourinho’s hunt of a new centre-back has been no secret over the last few months.

Manchester United tried and failed in bids for the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Diego Godin over the summer, leaving Mourinho to settle for the motley crew of Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling.

The latter has been an ever present for United in recent weeks, being joined at the back by Victor Lindelof in what has become their first-choice partnership. By no means is it comparable to some of their rivals, but the pair have been a part of United’s most fruitful run of the season so far.

That form is reportedly going to earn Smalling a new bumper contract worth £120,000-a-week – and it’s fair to say United fans aren’t too happy about it. The days of Smalling, Lindelof and Jones may well be set to continue a little while longer.

An Alderweireld-Maguire partnership must feel a long way away at this point, with a host of fans taking to Twitter to voice their opinions. Check below to see some of the best reactions to the news.
