Transfer News: In a shock late move, minnows Rochdale have thrashed out a deal with giants Manchester United.
As this weekend brought an end to the movement of players between clubs, Manchester United have agreed a last minute deal with Sunday League side Rochdale Marauders FC. Although the Old Trafford club have remained tight lipped about the details, the deal could be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds in legal fees.
Archie “Archie” Archibald, Rochdale’s left back, has agreed to transfer all the money he got from the sale of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coat on eBay. Archibald had nicked the coat from the cloakroom of a karaoke bar in Manchester’s Chinatown in 2006 before selling it on the popular auction website.
