Manchester United fans are looking rather interested at the claim from Metro that recent Barcelona capture Neymar is set to urge Wayne Rooney to join the Catalan giants this summer.
Neymar has of course become the marquee signing for the Spanish champions this summer and is currently making waves at the Confederations Cup and looks like he wants to be joined by the Manchester United ace next season.
Rooney has been linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal this summer and would ideally prefer a move to Chelsea, yet Neymar claimed that: “The style of football we [Barcelona] play and the level of the players we have – we are the perfect club for the top players to join.
“I have met Wayne on a few occasions and he seems a good guy but importantly, he is one of the players I admire most in the world.
“Wayne is one of the most gifted and technical players in the world.
“Of course he would improve Barcelona. He would improve any club in Europe. And on a personal level, it would be a dream to play with him,’ as one of our punters quips, we wouldn’t blame the player for having his head turned.”
How realistic is the proposition of Barcelona signing Wayne Rooney? Is he good enough for the La Liga giants? Let us know your thoughts below.
