Have your fill of the best jokes that Twitter had to offer as Southampton confirmed Man Utd’s interest in Sadio Mané, having been pipped to the Pedro post by Chelsea.

Louis van Gaal appears to have switched his attentions to the Senegal winger, who last season scored the Premier League’s fastest ever hat-trick, now that Barcelona star Pedro appears set for a £21m move to Stamford Bridge.

It seems though that many are unconvinced of this perceived drop in standards, from Red Devils fans themselves to sardonic supporters of other clubs.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy the best jokes to have emerged from this sudden Man Utd Mané interest…

"Mane has the potential to be better than Pedro" is where we're heading next

Man Utd have gone from Pedro to Mane. Like getting rejected by Mila Kunis then offering to buy Susan Boyle a drink. pic.twitter.com/VH0F1fuDgh

Missing out on Pedro for mane is like going to a dealership to buy an audi and driving off with a 98 honda civic.

Going from Pedro to Mane is like winning the league and finishing 7th the following season

maybe it was a typo? The text was supposed to be "kane" and autocorrect changed it to to "mane" yes that's probably it

Has anyone done an ambiguous and poorly conceived Pedro vs Mane stat comparison yet? If so do share. It will just about complete this day.

I'm a big fan of us signing Mané purely for the chant opportunities.

To be fair, Mané is a quality signing for the reserves.

TBF if #mane can score a hat trick in under 3 minutes, that's at least 30 goals a game/900 per season which could win #MUFC the title

Perhaps Utd bought Mane at the same time as Schneiderlin but didn't choose to group their purchases into as few deliveries as possible.
