It’s Monday morning and we’ve already come across the most ridiculous story of the week.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is being linked with a move to Liverpool. Yes, Liverpool.

Claims such as “Liverpool are reported to have drawn up a three-year contract for Marouane Fellaini” are, quite clearly, bullshit.

Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur was quick to rubbish the story as being one planted by Fellaini’s agent.

James Pearce, a highly respected Liverpool journalist, also ruled out the transfer from happening.

Fellaini will be a free agent at the end of the season and as the saga drags on it looks increasingly likely that he will be leaving United.

I have no doubt that will come as a relief to some Reds.
