It’s fair to say that should he move on, he will not be missed by the Old Trafford faithful, most of whom took to Twitter to either celebrate or make jokes.
Most compared the folly of the fee quoted to the £5m that Bayern Munich have just shelled out for Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso without realising that the 32-year-old’s wages will likely skyrocket beyond the extra £3m attached to Cleverley’s fee.
But anyway, below are the best tweet regarding the England international’s potential move to the West Midlands.

Tom Cleverley, a phonetically redundant vowel away from being the second most inappropriately named footballer ever after Dennis Wise.
