'Excellent business', 'Stupid amount' - Rangers fans react as major player exit reportedly nears
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is edging closer to an £11million move to China, according to an insider, and Gers fans are finding it hard to turn down a record fee for the Colombian.
Gers fans blog Four Lads Had a Dream, which has been a reliable source of news surrounding the club in recent months and has broken stories before the mainstream media, claimed in a Twitter update on Friday afternoon that the 21-year-old striker is on the verge of a club record transfer exit.
Looks like Alfredo Morelos is edging closer to move to China. The chinese refusing to take no for an answer
Rangers set for £11m for the striker. Contracts not agreed yet but this one certainly looks like it may be happening or could
Nothing definite, One to watch certainly

Rangers want to keep the striker at Ibrox after a fantastic start to life in Scotland by Morelos, who, as revealed by Football Insider this week, is also to be offered a jawdropping contract worth in the region of £38,000-a-week after tax.
If Morelos was to leave for the major sum of £11million it would trump the £9million fee received from Tottenham for Alan Hutton – and that has got fans thinking it may be time to cash in on ‘El Bufalo’.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
£11m and I would drive him to China. Stupid amount of money for a player who isn't the finished article.

10 million profit with a likely sell on clause. Gutted if he goes but some amount of money that.

Transfer window closed, top quality striker to leave.
The fee is fine, but that's a major blow for the remainder of the season

we cant turn down 10 or 11 milliin, we could get 3 top players with that, alfredo is great but after 26 games he has 11 league goals, its not exactly an amazing return we cant replace.

Morelos only joined the Gers in June for £1million from Finnish champions HJK Helsinki but has impressed since arriving in Scotland.
The 21-year-old has scored 15 times in 30 games for the Light Blues to overtake Faustino Asprilla’s record for goals scored by a Colombian in Europe and has emerged as a contender for the Colombian World Cup squad this summer.
In other Rangers news, a stunning £50,000-a-week deal is on offer to a Light Blues first teamer in game-changing development.
