Transfer Deadline day always generates a lot of crazy, head spinning rumours, due to the eagerness of football fans to see their clubs doing some last minute business, and Ghana’s Jordan Ayew wasn’t left out.
On Tuesday’s transfer Deadline day, an FC Barcelona parody account posted a fake announcement of Jordan Ayew to the club, and unfortunately, many, including some journalists missed the joke, sparking a flurry of publications and tweets to that effect.
