Mario Balotelli & Marcus Rashford
Former Man City striker Mario Balotelli is now on the books at Marseille.
On Sunday night, OM took on PSG in the French top flight.
PSG won the match 3-1 to increase their stranglehold on the Ligue 1 title.
A rumour spread like wildfire during the PSG-Marseille match.
It was claimed that Balotelli was wearing a Marcus Rashford t-shirt under his Marseille jersey.
The claim was made that the former Man City forward planned to reveal the pro-Man United shirt to troll PSG.
Man United knocked PSG out of the Champions League.

But there was just one problem with the Balotelli-Rashford story.
It was completely made up.
How do we know that? Because Balotelli has decried the false rumour on social media on Monday morning.
Balotelli called the Rashford t-shirt rumour “a lie”.
