It is not often you see a player post their own highlights video to potentially put themselves in the shop window for another club.
But Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina appears to have set the trend.
The 25-year-old has expressed his desire to leave St Mary’s this summer and the Times report that Manchester United have been given permission to talk to the midfielder over a potential transfer.
“I want to start afresh so why not let me leave,” Lemina said this weekend as quoted by in the Times report.
Southampton are said to be looking to recoup the £18m (BBC), they paid for Lemina and Arsenal are also reportedly interested in the former Juventus man.
Many United fans on twitter were shocked to see Lemina post his own compilation video, where he displays his touch, dribbling and passing ability in a series of clips.

Lemina has lost the plot stealing a #mufc fans video, adding his own logo and posting it here in a come & get me plea. Coming across as desperate mate. Highlights reel footballer, sums him up unfortunately. Talent is all there, application is rare. #saintsfc #ToniclikeoRANNgeade
