Bayern Munich have been busy in the transfer market today, as they confirmed the signings of Renato Sanches and Mats Hummels.

Sanches signs from Benfica, while defender Hummels is the latest player to switch from Borussia Dortmund to Munich.

With Sanches a long term target for Manchester United, Twitter went hard on mocking United fans when the Portugal international was pictured signing a contract with the multiple time Bundesliga champions.

Given Jorge Mendes is both Jose Mourinho and Sanches’ agent, it also left a few people wondering why Mendes would sell a target his client wanted – had he really been lined up for the United job – meaning Twittersphere also decided then and there United were keeping LVG for another season and Jose was off elsewhere.

Here’s the best of the reaction:

When the picture dropped, the United fans’ worst fears were confirmed:

Everybody searched for their best GIF:

Some cleared up any cases of mistaken identity:

Others offered their scouting reports:

And the digs at Man Utd soon came pouring in:

And the “in the know” Twitter accounts were soon shot down:

The Jose to United fans weren’t happy at all:

Never mind Man United fans, Marouane Fellaini’s going to have a storming season next year…
