Real Madrid To Prepare Bid For Wayne Rooney

Football - Manchester United Training & Press Conference
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has said that Real Madrid are ‘obsessed’ with Wayne Rooney and expects the Spanish club to make a bid for the striker during the summer.

Rooney added to his tally twice today with two goals against Fulham, making it 32 for the season. He is regarded by many as to currently be the world’s best player.

Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live, Calderon said: “It seems that it’s an obsession for the president [Florentino Perez] to go for Rooney. I imagine Manchester United wouldn’t like to lose a player like him.

“Sometimes it is a point of money, and if there is a proposal then maybe a deal can be reached. You have to take into account that the most important thing is what the player wants to do.”

He added: “(Cristiano) Ronaldo was a good signing, he is one of the best. He is a professional and is doing a really good job.

“However, I don’t know if it is possible to spend another €80m or €100m. I would imagine that in that case they (Manchester United) would be forced to sell.”

The only way I can see Man United selling Rooney is if we really needed the money and the way things are going with the debt, that is a possibility. But if things are that bad, I don’t believe that Rooney will be the first to go to try and bring some money in.

When will Real Madrid learn that buying all the best players in the world will guarantee trophies? I mean look what happened midweek- they were knocked out in knockout round of the Champions League for the sixth consecutive season. They had spent well over £200m in the summer.

Madrid can be as obsessed with Rooney as much as they want, I can’t see him going anywhere. It is a totally different situation to the Cristiano Ronaldo one. Ronaldo is a Real Madrid fan and he would always have gone there. I honestly can’t see Rooney going anywhere anytime soon, I can see him at Old Trafford for the rest of his career. We all knew that Ronaldo was going to go, but Rooney? I don’t think so.

One Response so far.
