Red Devils’ new striker goes into denial over move

New Manchester United signing Mame Biram Diouf thought his transfer to Old Trafford was a wind-up. The Senegalese young striker will join from Norwegian outfit Molde in January in a £2 million deal.

But the 21-year-old thought the deal was too good to be true.

Molde director Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen told The Sun: “He didn’t believe it was true. He thought it was a joke. It took a little time before the news hit him. He told me he then couldn’t sleep.”

A joint-press conference with Michael Owen ought to cure those sleeping problems in no time.
