Real Madrid Want Wayne Rooney But The Striker's Staying Put

It’s that time of the season where players will be linked with a move to and away from Old Trafford. Recent speculation has suggested that Wayne Rooney could be on his way out of United with the likely destination being Real Madrid.

Today The Sun are claiming that Real Madrid are set to offer Man United a record breaking £90 million for Rooney, they would also pay the striker £250,000-a-week.

Recently Rooney has tried to put an end to the speculation stating that he is happy at Old Trafford:

“There’s always speculation, and when other big teams are talking about you, it’s nice that you’re talked about. But as I’ve said many times before, I’m a United player and I’m very happy here.”

Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has rubbished these reports by saying that Rooney is staying at United.

"It is the silly season isn't it," Sir Alex said.

"It always happens at the end of the season. Wayne Rooney will still be here next year."

The 24-year old has played a massive part of United’s season, scoring 34 goals in all competitions. It’s no surprise that Real Madrid want him but throwing money clubs and buying the top players won’t work.

We’ve all seen how far spending £240 million on superstars last summer has got them, dumped out of the Champions League by Lyon in the first knockout round and sitting three points behind Barcelona in La Liga.
