Ligue 1 giants out of the race for Chelsea target

It's 'Rooney or bust' Chelsea fans at the Football Transfer Tavern were boosted to hear that Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has ruled out the chance of Wayne Rooney moving to the French capital this summer, as reported by Sky Sports.

Rooney has told United he wants to leave Old Trafford but the club are firm in their stance that the England forward will not be leaving this summer.

Chelsea have made a bid for the wantaway forward but David Moyes is not having any of it and is set for crunch talks with the number 10 when they return from their pre-season tour of Australia.

PSG signed Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani last week and are set to keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic, rendering the potential signing of Rooney as pointless.

“He is an amazing player, his qualities are well known by everyone,” Blanc told reporters.

“But in attack we are well supplied. We will rather look for players in midfield. If there should be another reinforcement, it should be in that position.

“Rooney could play anywhere, but his best position is in the heart of attack.”

In this boost to Chelsea, will the Blues find some way of landing Rooney this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
