Nemanja Matic's Mole Confirms Transfer To Man Utd After Leaked Image Emerges

In the digital media age, anything and everything will be used to wind people up in transfer silly season so when an image of a player pops up wearing the gear of a club he does not yet officially play for, people are naturally suspicious.

Photoshop has caused us all to be a bit more guarded, so when an image of Nemanja Matic in Man Utd training gear emerged on Sunday evening, before any word that a deal had been agreed or a medical had taken place, few were willing to accept it as real.

The first question that was asked was whether it was just an image of Bastian Schweinsteiger with Matic's head imposed on it, due to the #31, but that is the new training jersey for next season, so that idea was dismissed.

Then there were suggestions that it was Matteo Darmian and the #31 was just an altered #36, but that was dismissed after a breakthrough was made...

Thanks to a mole on his arm.

Welcome to football in 2017.

That's Matic, sitting in a Man Utd training kit, but nobody could allow themselves to accept it is real until we have hard evidence in the form of a very minor skin imperfection.

Man Utd fans are said to now be studying the freckles on Ivan Perisic's arms.
