Joe Allen has been linked with a lot of clubs this summer.

Swansea, Celtic, Sevilla, West Ham – the who’s who of potential suitors in near-endless.

But is this the strangest one yet? According to the South Wales Evening Post, Joe Allen could be about to move to our bitter rivals over at Old Trafford. They claim the futures of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Marouanne Fellaini are all up in the air, and Mourinho is tempted by the Euro 2016 star.

Even though he’s quite clearly hundreds of times better than their best midfielder (!), it’s still an outrageous rumour. In fact, it’s almost as ridiculous as the rumours linking us to Memphis Depay a few weeks ago…

Of course, no player has crossed the divide since we bought Phil Chisnell for a lofty £65,000 back in the sixties, though Rafa came close to signing Gabriel Heinze in the 2000s.
