After weeks of Benteke’s transfer saga, Crystal Palace have finally agreed to spend £30 million for the Liverpool striker Christian Benteke, according to BBC Sport.
Alan Pardew’s reported interest in the Belgian for some time but until now a deal could not be agreed, followed by the player’s medical in London this weekend.
Both clubs have agreed an initial £27 million, with £5million on top depending on Benteke ’s appearances.
Here are the best reaction from Twitter to the news that Benteke’s in on the verge of joining the Eagles.

This is the second time a club has paid £32m for Benteke.

Alan Pardew signing Christian Benteke 5 months after branding him a cheat for ‘diving’ to win a 96th minute penalty for #LFC v Palace.

Still baffles me that we sold Carroll because he didn’t fit our style of play only to go and spend £32m on a similar player in Benteke.
