There seems to be no sacred cows as far as the social media space is concerned.

The surprise victim of the dreaded hackers is La Liga club, Barcelona who have confirmed that their social media accounts were actually hacked on Wednesday. 

The club appears to announce the surprise signing of Angel Di Maria from PSG but that is not the case; at least for now.

The Argentina and Paris Saint-Germain attacker has been linked to Barca, who are still seeking reinforcements following Neymar's exit to the Ligue 1 outfit.

A bizarrely timed tweet in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Spanish time, appeared to confirm the 29-year-old's arrival at Camp Nou.

"Welcome Angel Di Maria to FC Barcelona! #DiMariaFCB," the tweet read.

However, hackers quickly followed up their transfer 'announcement', although a series of tweets remained published for more than half an hour before Barca seemingly intervened.

Later, the club tweeted: "Our accounts have been hacked tonight. We're working to solve the problem as soon as possible.

"Thanks for your patience."
