Did Man Utd's Twitter Account Accidentally Post Name Of Transfer Target During Manchester Derby?
It was one of the most action-packed games of the season thus far.
Manchester United managed to ruin Manchester City's title celebrations after two goals from Paul Pogba, and a winner from Chris Smalling sent social media into meltdown.
Moments before the winner, though, Manchester United's official Twitter account tweeted the name of a Real Madrid player who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent transfer windows.
That's right. For unknown reasons, United tweeted the name 'James Rodriguez' during the Manchester derby and it brought plenty of confusion.
Rodriguez, who is currently on loan at Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, was linked with a move to United last summer but he eventually decided to join the German club, and has since been a huge success under Jupp Heynckes.
They quickly deleted the post, but the screenshots can never be removed.

Back in December, James Rodriguez named the three Real Madrid players he's still in contact with while plying his trade in Germany with Bayern.
The Colombian international was subject to plenty of transfer speculation in the summer, though he eventually signed with the German champions on a two-year loan spell with an option to buy.

Are Rodriguez's Real Madrid days over?
Well, he continues to be linked with a move away from the Bernabeu despite the clause in his Bayern Munich loan contract.
And while revealing the players who he stays in touch with, he's also shared his thoughts on his parent clubs form from this season.
"They will get out of their rough patch because they are a great team, they have the tools at hand to be able to improve," Rodriguez told Spanish outlet AS.
"I left very good colleagues and friends behind in Madrid and, whenever I can, I watch their matches. I'm still in contact with [Sergio] Ramos, [Karim] Benzema and Marcelo," he added.
