Metro have brought Manchester United fans to a standstill here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that Wayne Rooney is still hot property around Europe.
The forward is not only attracting interest from domestic rivals Chelsea, but also Spanish giants Real Madrid.
As our landlord points out, both clubs are huge, but to have Real Madrid interested in you is something that would turn even the biggest of egos. Just ask Gareth Bale!
Rooney currently remains one of the best players at Manchester United and David Moyes is keen on keeping hold of the player.
One of our regulars puts down his pint and makes the comment that under the new manager, Rooney has been one of the best players around and is enjoying a new lease of life.
The player will be able to command a salary of around £200,000 per week in his next contract, and that is eye watering by anyone’s standards.
Should the player chose to stay at Old Trafford and become a legend, Chelsea will have to look elsewhere, and Radamel Falcao and Jackson Martinez are two of the hottest candidates for the role.
Real Madrid meanwhile are considering Luis Suarez, something that has not gone down well with Liverpool fans!
Will Rooney commit to the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
