Though silly season is always likely to throw up some strange rumours and reports, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern can’t quite get over the latest one.
Indeed, former United star Jonny Evans has been touted as a potential target for their rivals, Manchester City.
While the Northern Irishman is clearly a good defender, the idea of seeing a man they sold to West Brom move to Pep Guardiola’s revolution at the Etihad is certainly one that takes some getting used to.
Barely the most glamorous of names for the Spaniard, it’s certainly one of the most bizarre rumours of the summer.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how United fans on Twitter reacted to the Evans-Man City rumour.
I hope United put a sell-on clause in the contract when they sold Jonny Evans to WBA… #mufc

Had a dream:
20m Evans keeps 50m Stones on bench
Scores an own goal vs us
ManUtd finish 1st & City struggle to 3rd place
