And this ladies and gentlemen, is why we both love and hate the rumour mill.
Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin has been heavily linked with Manchester United over the past few days following some reports from French paper InfoSport.
Yesterday however, Sportsvibe took those rumours up a notch by reporting that the deal had been agreed and wrapped up.
Happy days then! That’s that story done!… Well, not quite.
Reading Sportsvibe’s story, one may note that they quote Metro as the source. Metro, in reporting the same story, quote the Daily Star as their source and, where does the Daily Star link to? Well, the initial reports from InfoSport of course.
