Chelski have dipped into the very deep wallet of Mr Roman Abramovich yet again to sign on loan until the end of the season all of the capitols Manchester United "fans".
It was confirmed by Old Trafford that all London based United fans have been handed to the soaring blues until the end of the season for an undisclosed amount.
A spokesperson for Chelsea gave the following statement:
"We are pleased to announce that we have signed on loan till the end of the Season in excess of seventy eight thousand Londoner and South East England Manchester United fans. They will quickly be brought into our fan rotation system whereby they will be allowed to see up to four games until the seasons end. We are sure you will agree that this is far in excess of the zero games they currently see live at Old Trafford"
The Spoof was disinclined to speak to any of these glory hunting types, but one ex-United fan called us and said:
"Since the loss of Becks to Madrid, the team has lacked style and panache. No-one from United is in Hello anymore, let's hope pretty boy Crespo can do it for us and get on the front page of GQ. Come on claret and blues. "
