PSG plan on stealing Wayne Rooney from Manchester United
Paris Saint-Germain are plotting to challenge Manchester United for the services of their crown jewel, Wayne Rooney. The mega-rich French club plans on stealing Wayne Rooney from Sir Alex Ferguson by offering an attractive transfer deal this summer.
Manchester United’s resolve will be put to the test once again by Carlo Ancelotti, who wants Wayne Rooney to feature in his attack. The 27-year-old England international, who has spent nine successful seasons at Old Trafford, has played a versatile role in Manchester United’s team over the years.
Since moving from Everton nine year ago, Wayne Rooney has become a key figure for Manchester United. However, the forward’s significance has decreased because of Robin van Persie’s phenomenal form.
The former Arsenal striker, Robin van Persie has scored 23 goals in 32 appearances for Manchester United. Meanwhile, Wayne is still stuck on 13 goals. With substitute players such as Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck threatening to break into Manchester United’s first-team, Sir Alex Ferguson will be forced to think twice before rejecting a money-loaded offer from Paris Saint-Germain.
A bid above £50 million should attract attention from the Manchester United board, although Sir Alex Ferguson will be strictly against losing Wayne Rooney, who is believed to be the club’s highest earner at £250,000 a week.
Carlo Ancelotti has successfully created an impressive squad since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain in 2011. The Italian boss’s squad includes world class players such as Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Javier Pastore, Lucas Moura, and the most recent addition David Beckham.
Paris Saint-Germain’s wealthy Qatari owners are willing to present Carlo Ancelotti with another treasure chest to spend during the summer transfer window. The Parc de Princes boss has already identified Manchester United’s Robin van Persie and Nemanja Vidic as transfer targets for the summer transfer window.
Wayne Rooney’s current contract with Manchester United expires in 2015, which means Paris Saint-Germain will have to empty their pockets in order to afford the large price tag on coveted English forward.
Paris Saint-Germain would do better by continuing their pursuit for Napoli star Edinson Cavani or Atletico Madrid hitman Radamel Falcao.
