There are reports of worldwide public disorder after it emerged Fabrizio Romano’s phone battery died.
The trusted football transfer journalist went offline several hours ago sparking panic among his millions of social media followers.
Soon after going offline, a source close to Romano moved to alleviate fan’s fears with a tweet reading:
‘Fabrizio Romano’s battery has died, here we go! Totally confirmed. He forgot to stick it on charge last night. Agreement reached. The journo will be back online shortly’.

However, the source dropped a bombshell several minutes later when he revealed the Italian had encountered an issue.
‘Romano phone situation. Rumours he’ll be back online anytime soon are wide of the mark. Been told Romano’s camp can’t find his phone charger. They thought it was in the drawer where he usually keeps it but it’s not there. No further transfer gossip today as it stands’.
News of Romano’s missing charger sent shockwaves across the globe with riots erupting in Paris, Los Angeles and Dundalk.
NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?
The stock exchange later announced that the FTSE fell to its lowest point since the financial crisis of 2007-2010.
Masked vigilantes desperate for transfer gossip ransacked newsagents as people resorted to reading tabloid back pages as if it was 1999.
Crowds gathered outside BBC buildings demanding the return of Ceefax page 302 as the need for up-to-the-minute football news intensified.
In the wake of the civil disobedience, Premier League clubs appealed for calm among supporters and released a joint statement that said:
‘Fans can rest assured our dressing room leaks are doing everything to help Mr Romano find his charger’.
‘To put your minds at ease, Liverpool and Spurs appear to have concluded their business. Arsenal are still trying to sign some players but Chelsea keep hijacking the deals’.
‘Man United still haven’t signed Frenkie de Jong’.
