Now that Rangnick has talked about midfielders, fully expecting these highly paid journalists come up suddenly with news from their "sources" about United signing midfielders from around the world. One of the easiest jobs in the world is to come up with nonsense transfer rumours and push it all under the word "sources" and then deny the news the very next day also pushing it on "sources". Easy articles, easy money.

And then six months later caftards will be saying we were 'linked with' someone, which is virtually an admission it was bollocks but they're going to say it anyway.
