Ravel Morrison 'likes' tweet suggesting he was seen leaving Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground

A general view of Bramall Lane beofre the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield United and Brentford at Bramall Lane on August 5, 2017 in Sheffield, England.

Some eagle-eyed Sheffield United fans think the controversial midfielder is Bramall Lane bound.

Ravel Morrison of SS Lazio looks on before the UEFA Europa League group G match between SS Lazio and AS Saint-Etienne at Olimpico Stadium on October 1, 2015 in Rome, Italy.

The former Manchester United and West Ham United midfielder, Ravel Morrison, has 'liked' a tweet suggesting he was seen leaving Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground with his agent on Thursday.

Morrison is without a club after leaving Ostersunds FK earlier this month, but refuted claims that he had walked out on the Swedish side.

 

It is the latest controversy in a career that is littered with them, and has seen him play for eight clubs in four different countries at the age of 26.

But the Sheffield United manager, Chris Wilder, is no stranger to taking on such challenges, having brought Ched Evans and Gary Madine to Bramall Lane against the wishes of some Blades fans.

And Morrison could be the next in line, if the following Twitter exchange is anything to go by.

Of course, there is every chance that Morrison is simply playing devil's advocate.

But not only does the former England Under-21 star tick several of the boxes typically identified by Wilder - having been schooled at a top club in Manchester United, and being someone with a point to prove - he also plays in the attacking midfield position in which the Blades are expected to add after Kieran Dowell returned to Everton.

Sheffield United fans - what would you make of Morrison joining the Blades?
