Twitter reacts to reports of Manchester United’s interest in signing Coutinho

Manchester United have been linked with making a move for Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, and as usual, the good people of Twitter have responded.

The January window has already been open for a week, but aside from Chelsea‘s move for Christian Pulisic, there hasn’t been too much to shout about on the transfer front.

However, if you want to make a transfer story go viral, one surefire recipe is to include Manchester United in the headline and throw in a bit of controversy, and there isn’t much more of a controversial story than United wanting to sign a former Liverpool fan favourite.

However, a quick look through twitter this afternoon shows that the Old Trafford faithful are pretty used to their club being used as a pawn to sell papers, and their fans certainly don’t look to be believing these latest transfer rumours

As a player that predominantly plays on the left wing or in midfield, this Twitter user correctly pointed out that it is not an area of Manchester United’s squad that it is in need of attention…

However, if he did move to Old Trafford, its fair to say he would burn his bridges with Liverpool fans…

While the reports have been picked up by some of the biggest news outlets around, they haven’t given them too much backing, with a number of journalists saying they simply are not true.

It’s safe to say that people think that is just another one of those BS transfer stories…
