Our hearts stopped for a minute when we saw this tweet yesterday evening!
Alisson Becker is Liverpool’s primary goalkeeping target and we’re currently locked in negotiations for his signature.
Di Marzio even reckons it could be announced in the next few days…
But Alison Becker (one s, not two), is an actress who’s been in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Luther, The Other Guys and Parks & Recreation!
So when we saw her jokey message, obviously aimed at all the people who’d been spamming her timeline since the links were announced, we initially thought it was a genuine announcement from the giant Brazilian!
Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper!

And we were not the only ones, with plenty of Reds admitting to prematurely celebrating the transfer!
Here’s some of our favourite replies:
