The jokes fly after claims that Man City’s transfer database is hacked by rivals

The People splash their backpage with news headline “Man City fear secret scouting database could have been HACKED by employee of Premier League rival.”

According to the article by Steve Bates:

With new boss Manuel Pellegrini set to take charge , City believe their online Scout7 performance analysis system – ­holding detailed scouting reports of every player they have targeted at home and around the globe – has been infiltrated.

An investigation is now under way to uncover the full ­extent of the ­security breach at the Etihad Stadium , how it happened – and who the culprits are. I understand City have brought in computer espionage experts to examine any ­possible trails. 

Whilst the People’s article looks serious enough at first instance, many have taken the opportunity to mock Man CIty’s transfer policies.

Below are some of the best jokes regarding claims that Man City’s transfer database is hacked by rivals.
