The football world was in a state of shock last night when news erupted that Liverpool star Rickie Lambert could be on his way to Old Trafford.
The transfer, which is expected to cost €5 million, was leaked by key sources at Anfield.
'Lambert is looking to leave the club as soon as possible', remarked one source.
'He has his heart set on joining Manchester United, so I reckon that the deal will go through by the end of the week.'
Meanwhile, Arsenal fan and television presenter Piers Morgan caused controversy on Twitter when he told his followers that the Liverpool striker was not worth the €5 million.
'Manchester United must be mad to offer that price. Lambert has been utter crap this season.'
