Torres to United? Best joke story of the day!

Transfer speculation from the press plummeted new depths today, with the Express running a laughable work of fiction its attempting to pass as a serious sports article. The paper states Manchester United are on the verge of a ‘shock £40m bid’ for Liverpool’s Fernando Torres. I did consider not even allowing this ridiculous story any space on this site, however the yarn by journalist John Richardson is worth a read for it’s comedic value and sheer audacity. Possibly the papers are attempting to top the barmy real life stories created by Ronaldo and Kaka moving to the Bernab√©u this week?

It does highlight quite clearly the ridiculous depths to which story starved journalists will go and adds reason to why Liverpool Football Club found it necessary to release a statement this afternoon regarding Alonso and Mascherano.

    I'd LOVE to watch Benitez tell Ferguson to bugger off if they do bid though.....
