Well come on, who didn’t see this coming?

Someone at The Hawthorns on Sunday supposedly recovered Sir Alex Ferguson’s last ever piece of gum chewed as Manchester United manager. Of course, it quickly found its way onto ebay, where the gum sold overnight for nearly $640,000

We’re a little disturbed by how many people fought over this piece of dry, yet saliva-infused, memorabilia, nor can we even be sure of its authenticity. But apparently all proceeds go to charity, so that’s nice.

The listing read as follows:

Used chewing gum: RARE. Recovered from The Hawthorns. Clear perspex/wooden case.

Unofficial merchandise, rumoured to belong to Sir Alex.

After 1,500 games of intense chewing as manager of Man Utd, here lies Fegie’s last piece of chewing gum.

All proceeds go to the MU Foundation charity.
