Fans stunned to discover which team transfer expert Fabrizio Romano supports

Fabrizio Romano has grown into one of the most recognisable and influential people on football today, updating us all on every significant transfer story.

Mr 'Here we go!' started as an 18-year-old with TuttoMercatoWeb and now has over 34 million followers across Instagram and Twitter, as well as 1.9 million YouTube subscribers.

He's the main for transfer news and you can tell that he absolutely loves how crazy the transfer market can be - even if it means he gets very little sleep.

Romano is from Naples, Italy and so you'd think it would make sense for him to be a follower of Serie A champions Napoli.

However, it turns out that the Romano actually supports championship side Watford because he used to always play with them on both FIFA and Football Manager.

The Hornets have Italian owners in the Pozzo family, which only added to his love for the club.

"Honestly... I support Watford because it has been my club on Fifa and Football manager since 15 years!" Romano tweeted in 2019.

"And because of their Italian ownership! I’d like to come back at Vicarage soon."

Watford even reacted to the tweet and told Romano he was welcome anytime at Vicarage Road. He's been to the stadium four times, having had tickets to a game from midfielder Valon Behrami when he was playing for the club.

Earlier this year he was invited for a special tour of Vicarage Road - ten years on from its most memorable moment when Troy Deeney scored a dramatic, last-gasp play-off semi-final winner.

"I was watching live the famous match, Watford vs Leicester, Vicarage Road," Romano said on his YouTube channel in September.

"It was incredible, the feeling when Troy Deeney scored the goal the last-minute goal after Manuel Almunia saving the penalty in the key match of the play-offs was unbelievable.

"The feeling I had when we had the famous Troy Deeney goal was something unforgettable to me. So that’s how it started for me to support Watford."
