Man Utd fans joke that Leicester's 'Lucky Charm' will win them the Premier League

Cambridge United v Leicester City - Pre-Season Friendly

Manchester United are the 2019/20 Premier League champions, you heard it here first.

Ok, bear with us a second, but that's bizarrely the feeling amongst some United fans, who believe their capture of Harry Maguire could propel them back into title contention.

Lest we forget that the Red Devils finished in second place as recently as 2017-18 and although Manchester City ran away with the league, they comfortably surpassed their top six rivals.

And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn't exactly gone wild with the cash this summer, they seem to have made some shrewd signings in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

There can be little doubting that Maguire is the headline arrival, though, and he has the potential to become one of the Premier League's best defenders at Old Trafford this season.

'Leicester Lucky Charm'

Not only that, but United fans have picked up on an amusing trend that has many of them joking on Twitter that their first league title since 2013 is finally on its way.

Forget the Drake Curse, we seem to have found the 'Leicester Lucky Charm' with any high-profile departures from the King Power Stadium seeming to hit immediate gold.

N'Golo Kante is the perfect example and after immediately ditching Leicester's title-winning side, he found himself lifting the Premier League trophy yet again with Antonio Conte's Chelsea.

It was then the turn of Riyad Mahrez to jump ship and after taking the decision to sign with City, the Algerian found himself champion of the realm once again under Pep Guardiola.

On that basis then, we might as well sack off the whole Premier League, send an official apology to the Etihad Stadium and congratulate everyone at United now. All agreed?

Ah well, we can at least humour the United fans that are pushing the joke across Twitter and you can check out some of the finest posts down below: 

I guess there's got to be something keeping them optimistic.

In all seriousness, Leicester have enjoyed some incredibly talented players in recent years and United could bridge the gap to the Champions League places with their purchase.

Will this summer be enough to make a title charge, though? It seems unlikely, but that's admittedly more to do with City and Liverpool's dominance than United being a complete write-off.

If United fans are particularly keen to push the Leicester narrative, however, then they can perhaps draw inspiration from the Kante situation in particular.

The Chelsea team he joined was also on the back of a disappointing season, were poorly favoured compared to Guardiola's City and with a relative Premier League novice in charge.

We can't see it transpiring ourselves, but in a competition where Leicester went all the way, stranger things have happened.
