Football club transfers are bizarre.

A few years ago, representatives from Manchester United went to Atletico Bilbao to negotiate a transfer for Ander Herrera. It turned out that the representatives were actually fraudsters.

I can't believe that nobody at Bilbao phoned up Man Utd and said "Do these chaps speak for you?"

(He ended up moving the next summer for about £30m, so it's not peanuts on the line).
