Real Madrid Announce They Have Signed Lionel Messi And Sold Karim Benzema After Twitter Hack

giants are the latest club to have fallen prey to cyber-crime after their official social media accounts were hacked following a tweet and Facebook post welcoming to the club.

Arch rivals were the first club to be hacked when a tweet on Wednesday morning announced the signing of Angel Di Maria from giants Paris  Saint-Germain.

However, the Catalan giants were quick to confirm that their official account was hacked – and Real Madrid were also hacked on Saturday – with a tweet and Facebook post reading: “Welcome Messi”.

The post showed a video of Messi netting the winning goal in Barcelona’s incredible 3-2 stoppage-time win at the last season.

A security hacker group named ‘OurMine’ claimed responsibility after a series of weird tweets and Facebook posts via the Spanish club’s social media accounts.

A tweet read: “OurMine Team here, Internet security is s*** and we proved that. for more security *Not Only FC Barcelona*”

That was followed by: “Let’s make #RealMadridHack Trending.”

Karim Benzema

Another tweet claimed they had sold Karim Benzema, who has been a target for Premier League clubs, and also asked the fans if they would want the club to buy another player.
