The Daily Mail have a sensational claim today for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that David Moyes could well be set to face a serious challenge after Wayne Rooney remains set on leaving the club.
United are keen on keeping the player who is currently on his holidays and is set for a showdown conversation with David Moyes when he returns to the club for pre-season training.
A host of clubs have been linked to the forward as we all know and now it seems that Rooney could well be set to tell Moyes that leaving Old Trafford is what he wants to do.
Moyes will try everything in his power to keep his former protege at the club but with several top sides in Europe sniffing around – whether he can do so remains to be seen.
Chelsea and a link up with Jose Mourinho is the route Rooney would prefer to go down, yet Mourinho seems more set on luring the likes of Edinson Cavani to Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti are also big fans of the England international and there have even been rumours that Rooney could be on the radar for Catalan giants Barcelona.
