Those involved know exactly what is being referred to in the headline - a staggering 76% of Manchester United fans own a replica Barcelona shirt!
With the number 76 printed on the back!
Experts believe that a whopping 76% of Manchester United fans regard Barcelona as their second favourite team.
This sickening love affair between Manchester United fans and all things Barcelonin is believed to have first reared it's ugly head back in 1999, when tens of thousands of United fans travelled to Barcelona for the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich at the Nou Camp, a game United won with late goals from Sheringham and Solksjaer in the one of the most dramatic ever climaxes to a big game.
On that occasion, United fans packed the bars along the famous Ramblas and in Placa Real, and they enjoyed the experience so much that many revisited the Catalan metropolis on many occasions.
On any given day in holiday season, Mancunian accents are commonplace on the streets of the city, and many United fans take a time out to attend a La Liga fixture at the hugely impressive Nou Camp.
Many buy replica Barca shirts as a souvenir of their visit, and to this day it remains quite common to see men and women wearing Barcelona shirts whilst swilling pints of Estrella Dam in prestigious watering holes such as the Cafe De L'Opera.
Whilst chatting away to one another in broad Mancunian accents.
One such Manchester United fan, Martin Shuttlecock, freely admitted owning a Barcelona replica shirt.
"The wife bought it for me somewhere in El Raval, in the Barri Xines. But I shan't be wearing it on Saturday. Not a chance. It's staying in the bloody drawer upstairs in the bedroom. And that's a fact! Besides, it's got Ronaldinho's name and number on the back, and I wanted Puyol. But don't tell anybody, for God's sake!"
We won't Martin, you big knob head.
More as we get it.
