Fake tweet creates a bizarre transfer rumor incl. Man Utd & Bayern Munich players

Silly season in full flow as football fans woke up to the news of an outrageous swap rumor between Bayern Munich & Manchester United this morning. The rumor being that the German giants were willing to offer Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben plus cash for Man United’s Argentinian winger Angel Di Maria.

And the source of this rather outrageous rumor was a tweet from a fake account @UliBeckerBild. The fake tweet (seen below) in German seemed to have duped many of the reputable media houses such as BBC, Sky, Telegraph, talkSPORT, Fox Sports, Mail, Star, Express etc., who were all reporting the swap rumor and putting their source as Bild.

Quite shocking!
