Did Nostradamus predict Manchester United's summer signings 460 years ago?

This is proper Twilight Zone stuff – what do you think Manchester United fans?

Manchester United's 2015 summer transfer window will probably always be remembered for the splashing out of £36 million on Anthony Martial (price reported by the BBC) and the David de Gea will he, won't he saga.

However, one eagle eyed Reddit user has spotted something a bit... odd about United signings and reckons that French know-it-all Nostradamus may well have predicted who Louis van Gaal would bring to Old Trafford 460 years ago...

No seriously! 

Reddit clever clogs GrabbingTheBrassRing, was having a look through Nostradamus’s 1555 tome ‘The Prophecies’  when he spotted something rather shocking – almost all of his club's major transfer deals had been predicted by the 16th century chap.

Just have a look at this... 

Oh my... So come on, what do you think? Are you believers or do you think this is just a load of rubbish? We wonder if Nostradamus could have predicted Arsenal's transfer dealings... though, come to think of it, anyone could have predicted that!
