United may be desperate, but not that desperate, Emmanuel.
Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has trolled Manchester United by pretending that he is in transfer talks with the stuttering Red Devils.
United have made a very poor start to the 2014-15 season, losing 2-1 to Swansea City, drawing 1-1 at Sunderland and then getting thrashed 4-0 by MK Dons.
Frimpong, who made just six Premier League appearances during his time with the Gunners, is currently a free agent, having been released by Barnsley earlier this year.
The 22-year-old uploaded a video of himself to Instagram on Tuesday night.
