Man Utd Accidentally ‘Confirm’ Robert Lewandowski Signing On Club Website, Immediately Delete Article

By Chris Wright

Like they did with the announcement that David Moyes was to be their new manager, Manchester United’s PR team have once again jumped the gun in posting an article confirming the purchase of Robert Lewandowski on their official club website before deleting almost immediately.

According to Paddy Power and their quick-draw screen capture intern, this is what the article looked like…

Coming in the week that Dortmund chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke told Bild that they simply point-blank wouldn’t allow Lewandowski to join Bayern Munich this summer, maybe there is something afoot here.

To all the United fans out there, is this enough to get you excited?

UPDATE: It’s already been debunked…

But don’t let that spoil your fun!

    I’m calling fake, formatting is off completely and: http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/What-The-Papers-Say/2013/Jun/United-lead-the-race-to-sign-Robert-Lewandowski.aspx

    Note the “Round up by Mark Froggatt” at the end, as well as the same photo.

    The http://redmancunian.com website said it was a fake and the quotes are from when Robin van Persie signed for United.
