Transfer Rumour: Wayne Rooney to Barca?


According to London newspaper The Guardian, a source close to Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney said that he “would like to come to Barca.” Rumors about the possible departure of Rooney were rife after the player didn’t make the starting lineup against Real Madrid on Tuesday in the Champions League at Old Trafford.

“Every year we say that Wayne Rooney will leave United at the end of the season, but if this eventually happens, the player would like to go to Barcelona”, reported the source.

“I’m sure there will be plenty of offers,” said the source, but highlighted that “a bid from FC Barcelona would be considered above any other.”

“Rooney watches all Barcelona’s games and is a big fan. He has first-hand experience of how good they are and is a great admirer of their brand of football,” he continued, referring to Barcelona’s particular style of play.

Barcelona fans may recall that last August, Rooney’s son Kai was photographed wearing a Barcelona jersey and Leo Messi’s statements made ??at the time about the England striker, where he admitted that he would love to see both Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale playing alongside him.

Despite the news, Manchester United’s manager, Sir Alex Ferguson has denied the rumors in today’s British press that pointed to a possible departure of Wayne Rooney from the club this summer, and who assured that the striker “will not be going anywhere.”
