The Daily Mail have a sensational claim for us to chew over here in the Football Transfer Tavern today as they report that Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has urged his side to bid for Wayne Rooney.
The Manchester United forward has been involved in constant speculation over his future and each day it seems to be a different rumour – one day he is staying at the club and the next he seems to be leaving. As we all know, Paris Saint-Germain have more money than most and could certainly be able to afford to not only pay the transfer fee Rooney would cost but also the wages he would demand to boot.
Now it seems that PSG defender and Joey Barton’s nemesis Silva has urged the club to make a play for the England International and bring him to the club and pair him up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Silva claimed: “I love this player.
“Whenever I have played against him he has scored. I would really like Rooney to sign for PSG. This would be a reinforcement of quality for us.”
David Moyes meanwhile has claimed he wants to keep the player at the club despite constant speculation linking Rooney not only with clubs abroad but also Premier League rivals Arsenal to boot.
