Are the Express on the ball?

Cesc has struck a deal to join according to this morning’s Express newspaper, which runs the story on its back page.

The Express notes:

Cesc has agreed to join Manchester following a secret meeting between the star’s agent Darren Dein and Old Trafford Chief Executive Edward Woodward.

We’ve seen headlines like this before with a certain Dutch midfielder, I’m sure of it, so forgive me if I’m a tad cynical when it comes to what the British state. Only a few weeks ago, Alcantara had reportedly all but decided on a move to Old Trafford according to the press, yet the Spanish midfielder recently claimed he hadn’t even spoken to the Reds.

The Express certainly are sticking thier necks out on this one though and if they’ve got it wrong they’ll have a lot of explaining to do, while if the story turns out to be true- and that’s a big “if”- United may have a lot of celebrating to do….
