It's transfer silly season, and that means that no matter where you look there will be rumours, #sources, bids being prepared, and confident claims from "people close to the player".
There are two types of people when it comes to dealing with transfer news and rumours:
1) People who don't really pay much attention until it's confirmed.
2) Transfer muppets.
Here are the five signs that can let you know if you are in fact a transfer muppet, so you can get some help. Unless you're happy to be a transfer muppet, in which case, keeping doing your thing.
1. You draft up potential line-ups for next season featuring players that haven't even been linked to the club yet.
Yes, we did do this earlier today, but this is the least harmful trait of a transfer muppet, so hopefully you'll forgive us for that.
2. You are aware of a potential transfer target following new people on social media.
That's right, some Manchester United fans became aware of the fact that Memphis Depay followed United youngster (and former PSV teammate) Andreas Pereira on Instagram last night. In this case it did actually turn out to be a hint, but please don't do this. It's bad for your mental health.
