A leading Hollywood producer is planning to make a film about Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo.
The Europa League semi-final second leg was dubbed the biggest match in United’s history by Jose Mourinho.
Producer Tom Wilson wants to recreate the dramatic way the Red Devils clung on to their narrow aggregate lead against the Spanish giants – whose history is second only to the mighty Deportivo La Couruna in the Galicia region.
Wilson says: “This is going to be such a wonderful tale – a group of journeymen assembled for a little over £600 million, who get reduced to their bare bones, and Wayne Rooney, on the eve of their biggest match ever.
“Somehow they take the lead! Then despite their opponents getting 62% possession and having 12 shots, their handsome manager inspires them with threats to drop them for the final.
“The nasty Mexican team need just one more goal, but they fluff an open base in the final minute, and the miracle is complete.
“It truly might be the greatest story ever told!”
The producer did not comment on reports that Bradley Cooper has already been approached for the lead role of Marouane Fellaini, although he did say Matt Damon would be an ideal pick to play Jose Mourinho in the movie.
