The BBC’s 606 Twitter account has attracted attention for posting and deleting a tasty quote attributed the Jose Mourinho on the Juan Mata deal with Manchester United.

The BBC 606 tweet read:

Mourinho: “I don’t see a problem selling Mata to Man United, they are no threat to us. What are your thoughts on this #CFC & #MUFC fans?

No sooner had the tweet gone out, but it was instantly retracted by the flagship British broadcasters. It all begged the question had someone jumped the jump? Or alternatively, was the quote false?

A copy of the BBC’s juicy deleted tweet suggesting Juan Mata is leaving Chelsea for Man United imminently is below.
