Cunning trick sees Man United favourites to sign world’s best player

Football fans are a funny bunch, aren’t they?

Man United are reportedly on the verge of announcing the free transfer of former Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes on a two-year contract. And aside from Man United fans expressing their concerns for David De Gea’s immediate Old Trafford future, they also think Valdes’ arrival has some kind of cryptic meaning.

It is no secret that Victor Valdes and Lionel Messi are close friends from their time together at Barcelona, which obviously means Man United are going sign Lionel Messi now.

Of course they aren’t! But try telling that to this bunch of dreaming Man United fans. I suppose you can’t blame them for being optimistic…
