There are giggles here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by the Daily Express that Wayne Rooney is about to join Barcelona.
Of course the rumours over the player leaving Manchester United have been rife and most people took that along with a rumoured switch to Paris Saint-Germain with a pinch of salt. Now however it seems that even more ludicrous notion has been mooted.
The publication are linking Rooney with the move because he is a ‘admirer of Iniesta and Messi’. Well, as one punter quips if that is the spec for a move to the Camp Nou these days we should all pack our bags because that is where we are going tomorrow. Add to this the follow up reason that son Kai was spotted in a Barcelona kit and it is fairly clear the rumours are shall we say less than well founded.
It may be the case that Rooney does eventually move, but a move to the Catalan giants seems rather unlikely especially given their strength and depth of talent. It seems the PSG rumours certainly carry more weight yet the denials from camp Rooney and indeed camp Fergie roll on.
Have the Rooney to Barca rumours been on the booze? Rate this rumour below.
