West Ham Rooney move reportedly unlikely, striker remains Hammers priority

One West Ham fan here in the Transfer Tavern may want to take his hurriedly printed ‘Rooney 10’ West Ham shirt back and ask for a refund with reports from Football.London claiming that any Hammers move for Wayne Rooney this summer is unlikely.

Sky Sports claimed earlier today that the England skipper is a major target for the club ahead of the looming off-season should the Red Devils opt to offload him.

Reports from the Independent have already hinted that Rooney may well be moved on in a few months’ time with Man United keen to free up funds for a marquee purchase, but despite the likelihood of the 31-year-old being available, London.Football state that a source has informed them it’s improbable he will be wearing the claret and blue jersey anytime soon.

However, it is understood that signing a striker this summer remains a top priority for the Irons, whose current top scorer this season is versatile wide-man Michail Antonio.

Is this the summer Wayne Rooney should leave Manchester United?
