Manchester United fans were cracking up over claims from Zlatan Ibrahimovic about a bet with Romelu Lukaku.
The Swedish forward said he attempted to make a bet with the Belgian forward over his first touch, saying he would pay him £50 for every good touch of the ball the player had (Gazzetta Dello Sport via The Metro).
The LA Galaxy forward then went on to praise the 26-year-old, talking about his hunger and how he thinks Lukaku can do well at Internazionale.
Lukaku scored 42 goals and assisted a further 13 in just 98 games in all competitions before he moved to Italy for a fee believed to be £74m (via BBC).
He was questioned by former Old Trafford man and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville over his fitness following the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
Fans were in fits of laughter over the claims from their former forward as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
