Mail Online journalists Ian Ladyman and Sami Mokbel have arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern today and they bring news that unsettled Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will consider a move abroad if he fails in bid to engineer his preferred switch to Chelsea this summer.
The 27-year-old England international is reportedly plotting to hand a formal transfer request in later this week as he tries to facilitate a £30 million transfer to Stamford Bridge after becoming disappointed with life at Old Trafford.
The Blues are set to return with a third bid after seeing their £25 million offer plus extras immediately rejected as new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho looks to bring in a new focal point to his attack.
United continue to maintain that the former Everton man is not for sale at any price to one of their main rivals for the Premier League title during the current transfer window but his position is starting to look untenable as he continues his campaign to leave.
If Rooney fails to secure his transfer toStamford Bridge he will consider a move to an attractive foreign side rather than stay at Old Trafford according to the two journalists in the bar.
However after considering the limited options for Rooney, we really can’t see where he would end up? Paris Saint-Germain were thought to be interested in the forward but new manager Laurent Blanc has recently declared that they have no need to move for Rooney after landing Edinson Cavani.
Neither of the top two sides in Spain want Rooney while Monaco, Napoli and Bayern Munich have finished their major business for the summer.
Is this the end of Rooney at United? Should the club sell him if given the chance? Let us know your thoughts below.
