Arsenal interested in taking Wayne Rooney from Man Utd
Arsenal are plotting a summer move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.
According to the Daily Mail, members of the Gunners’ backroom team were discussing bidding for the wantaway England international as far back as March after being alerted that he was no longer happy at Old Trafford.
Arsenal are said to be serious about completing what would amount to a very drawn out player exchange with Robin Van Persie following his move in the opposite direction last summer.
But the Gunners’ oft-discussed wage structure is likely to be a major stumbling block. Rooney’s current £250,000-a-week pay packet is twice that earned by Arsenal’s current top-earner, Lukas Podolski.
Can you see it happening?
