Man United chasing Liverpool’s average Welsh midfielder….
Man United are apparently lining up a £20m bid for Liverpool’s diminutive midfielder Joe Allen, reports the Mirror.
Naturally, Twitter found this pretty hilarious…
I thought I’ve seen it all, but it seems I haven’t. Man U want Joe Allen… and are willing to pay £20m for him!!!!! What a joke.
