Ligue 1

French giants could provide Manchester United star an escape route

Wayne RooneyManchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left feeling nervous with the news that big spending Paris Saint-Germain want Wayne Rooney.

According to the Mail Online, Laurent Blanc is planning a £35 million deal for the England international striker in a sensational move that would see him partner Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack in France’s Ligue 1.

Numerous rumours have come to light this week with the news that Wayne Rooney is worried about keeping his starting place at Old Trafford now Louis van Gaal is set to take over.

The rumours stem from van Gaal’s relationship with fellow striker Robin van Persie with van Gaal set to make RVP the club’s main striker.

It has even been said that van Persie could be handed the captaincy at the club – something that is bound to anger the 28-year-old.

Rooney recently signed a bumper contract deal worth £300,000-a-week and there isn’t many clubs that could afford to take on that sort of wage.

But high-spending PSG certainly could and it wouldn’t take that much to sway Rooney considering he’s tried to force through numerous moves in recent seasons.

What do you think Manchester United fans? Is Wayne Rooney loyal to the club or just at Old Trafford for the money?
