Turkish club Galatasaray have claimed that they are planning to sign Marouane Fellaini as Man Utd are all but ready to offload the Belgian from amongst their ranks. And no sooner did the news break that everyone was talking about how United were on the verge of signing Nemanja Matic from Chelsea.
And within hours of this news being circulated, a picture of Nemanja Matic wearing a United training shirt has gone viral on the internet. The picture showed up on a social media platform and suddenly it’s the talk of the town.

Many Twitter users even went to great lengths in order to verify if the picture was original or photoshopped:

Nemanja Matic is seen wearing the No 31 shirt which was previously worn by Bastian Schweinsteiger. And this has led many fans to believe that the picture might be real given the fact that the shirt was without an owner ever since the German legend left for the MLS.
Telegraph Sport has claimed that Matic has completed his medical on Sunday afternoon and thus the leaked image is legitimate.
So, if the image is indeed real then we can expect an official announcement within the next 24 hours.
