Fake Real Madrid Tweet Announcing Signing Of Ashley Young Goes Viral

A fake tweet announcing that Real Madrid had signed Ashley Young promptly went viral.

Twitter user @RealMadridCFi posted a pretty well-executed photoshop of a graphic announcing that the Manchester United defender had become Real's latest summer signing.

With 'Comunicado Oficial', the two words that signal business has picked up when it comes to Real Madrid, it no doubt duped a whole lot of people scrolling down on their timeline, garnering over 9,000 retweets and 18,000 likes at the time of writing.

It's a very good fake signing announcement but still falls short to the time Sky Sports thought Aberdeen had signed a player called 'Yerdas Selzavon'.


Meanwhile 33-year old Young somehow managed to blag himself a new contract at Old Trafford despite a series of poor displays.

He infamously lost possession 32 times against Barca in the Champions League quarter final first leg at Old Trafford, as well as not completing any of his 11 attempted cross.

Then in the return leg at the Nou Camp, he made four key errors inside 15 seconds for Lionel Messi's opening goal in the 16th minute after a fairly promising start from United.
