Manchester United and Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon cannot hold back their laughter, after an amazing claim was suggested that indicates the Blues could sign one of United’s most recognised players.
The Metro reports that Chelsea’s search for a new striker has seen them emerge as favourites to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, with SkyBet offering odds as low as 7/1 that the England captain will move to West London.
Rooney has netted just twice this campaign, with United struggling for goals, and the 30-year-old has left many fans unconvinced that he still has the talent to play at the highest level.
It seems other Premier League sides disagree though, as Everton (10/1), Paris Saint-Germain (10/1), Arsenal (20/1) and Tottenham Hotspur (20/1) are all believed to be interested.
Understandably, the most likely scenario is for Rooney to remain at Manchester United but fans throughout the bar cannot believe the low odds being offered for a potential move.
Will Wayne Rooney finish his career at Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below!
