Manchester United fans have unleashed their fury on social media after Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly agreed a move to bitter rivals Manchester City.
According to Spanish outlet AS, the Red Devils legend, 36, has agreed a switch to the Etihad on a two-year deal in principle.
It claims that City star Gabriel Jesus could be heading the other way, although the finer details of the transfer and Ronaldo's contract are yet to finalised.
But the news has sparked an outpouring of anger from United fans, who first watched the Portuguese captain burst onto the scene under Sir Alex Ferguson as a teenager.
One disgusted fan vented: "What the f***? No way would he, surely not?" Another branded him a "traitor".
A fellow Red Devils fan said: "He's about to ruin his legacy in Man United fans eyes. The only fanbase that truly hype him."
One fumed: "He better not. He just better not."
And yet another angry United fan said: "If Ronaldo is looking for challenge why can't he go back to Manchester United and bring back glory?"
If Ronaldo does join the Premier League winners, it means all eyes will be on the first Manchester derby of the season which will take place at Old Trafford on November 6.
If the social media reaction is anything to go by, he'll certainly be in for a frosty reception.
According to the report, the Ronaldo deal could involve Jesus heading in the other direction but it's unclear if this will go ahead.
However, boss Pep Guardiola is still a big fan of the Brazilian which could lead to England star Raheem Sterling being used as a makeweight instead.
The move would mark one of the most sensational transfers of all time, in one of the most dramatic transfer widows ever too.
Arch-rival Lionel Messi, who has six Ballon d'Or awards to Ronaldo's five, has left Barcelona to join PSG.
And on Wednesday, City target Harry Kane announced he was staying at Tottenham Hotspur after a drawn-out transfer saga.
