The Sun had a field day with a United blunder again: apparently, a profile screen was created on the official website for Atlético Madrid’s Sergio Agüero. Now this can be interpreted in two different ways.

First, that this is a leak, that United actually have an agreement with Atletico Madrid and started to create the profile for their new acquisition but someone screwed up and it appeared prematurely.

Or you can accept the club’s explanation, quoted by the Sun, that it was merely a technical anomaly. Probably someone was fooling around or running some kind of test, who knows?

Unfortunately anyone who saw a financial report on United – in other words, anyone who clicked on a football website in the last two weeks – will know that the latter is a significantly more likely explanation. I would estimate that the first version has a chance of about 0.0001 percent.
