However, following a quiet window in the Premier League, he was instead asked about Lewis Hamilton and F1.

Following the news of Hamilton’s potential switch to Ferrari, Merson was asked if he would say it is the equivalent of joining Real Madrid.

He responded: “You would, if they were the dominant one but they’re not the dominant one.

“I’d say it’s a bit like Man United. A bit like playing for Man United. You know, if Man United come for you, one of the biggest clubs in world football, not doing great now but how do you turn them down?

“They’re one of the greatest teams and that’s probably one of the things with Ferrari. It’s the name. Everybody wants a Ferrari don’t they?”

Viewers were left scratching their heads, though, with one writing on social media: “Deadline is dead and you can tell.”

Another added: “Paul Merson is not serious, he has no clue about F1.”

A third fan also joked: “I’m not saying it’s quiet but Paul Merson is currently on Sky Sports News discussing the Lewis Hamilton news.”
