Warning: signing for Manchester United can cause paranoia and insomnia
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.
