Twitter EXPLODES as Christian Benteke moves to Liverpool including DANCING Brendan Rodgers

Christian Benteke completed his £32.5 million transfer to Liverpool on Wednesday evening.

The Aston Villa striker had long been mooted for a move to Anfield, and the transfer has appeared inevitable ever since the Reds met the forward’s fee release clause to take him from Birmingham.

The Belgium international—who scored 49 goals in 101 appearances during his time at Villa Park—has signed a five-year deal with the Merseyside giants.

He will be charged with replacing the goals lost when Luis Suarez moved to Barcelona, with the trio of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini all failing to convince as the leading man with the Reds.

Twitter has responded ferociously to the transfer, with fans split as to whether the powerful attacker will be a difference-maker for Brendan Rodgers’s side, or whether Liverpool have overspent horribly for a player who has had his fair share of injury concerns.
