Here at the Football Transfer Tavern not only are we busy discussing the Champions League draw but we are also eagerly debating the news thatthe Metro claim mega wealthy Paris Saint Germain have no interest in Wayne Rooney – for now.
There has of course been a huge amount of speculation just about everywhere over the future of the forward since he was omitted from the Real Madrid game and now it seems one of his most likely destinations have closed the door on a move.
Speaking after the draw which paired PSG with Barcelona, Leonadro was asked about the Rooney rumours and claimed ‘No, no, we did nothing and never did, and if we do the first one will be Manchester United, at the moment there is nothing.’
However as one of our punters quipped he also proposed to his girlfriend live on Sky Italia so he was clearly in shall we say a special mood and followed up his Rooney denial by totally contradicting himself and noting ‘Paris Saint Germain became a team who can buy all the players, the opposite of the other clubs. It is nice some big players, not only Rooney, they want to come.’
Fergie of course has denied Rooney will leave but as we all know, what Fergie says and what he does are sometimes two different things.
