Record-breaking Man United striker targeted for Chinese switch

rooney777The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating the summer already after a fairly miserable season to date.

Their attentions have already turned to who the club might look to get rid of during the summer, and some news has emerged today that might be of interest to them.

The landlord is reading his copy of The Mirror, when he spots a piece from Sven Goran Eriksson, who says he wishes to sign United star Wayne Rooney for his team Shanghai SIPG.

The article also claims that the Chinese club will offer the United skipper a whopping £500,00 PER WEEK, to sign for them, although the former England boss does concede that he doubts the signing can happen right now.

Rooney has been a massive hit in the Premier League but his form has dipped in recent years. Despite this, he’s the captain of both his club and national side- and moving to China would likely see England’s all-time leading goalscorer retire from the international picture.

One United fan is playing pool with his pals and thinks the money the Chinese teams are throwing around is ludicrous and thinks anyone who makes the move to the Far East is lacking serious ambition.

United fans… You wouldn’t want to lose your captain would you? Let us know in the comments below!
