Having been left out for Manchester United’s crunch match with Real Madrid last month as well as the last two games, speculation about where Wayne Rooney will be playing his football next season continues to grow.
The striker has frequently found himself the center of rumours following his transfer saga in 2010, and at the start of the season had to use Twitter to deny he would be leaving the club, claiming he is ‘here to stay’.
But despite this he has strongly been linked with a move to PSG in recent weeks.
The French club, essentially owned by an the state of Qatar, have money to burn and in recent seasons have flexed their financial power with marquee big money signings like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Tiago Silva and Lucas. But speaking today the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has denied they have shown an interest in Manchester United’s number 10.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Al-Khelaifi said
“He is a great player, he is one of the best strikers in the world.
“I think everybody would like to have him but, if you want to talk about the fact, we didn’t approach him.”
