Arsenal keeping tabs on Wayne Rooney situation

ManUtd-Wayne_Rooney-1200Arsenal are keeping tabs on Wayne Rooney’s situation as doubts surround his future at Manchester United, while PSG are also keen, according to the Daily Star.

Rooney, who is three goals away from breaking the 200 barrier for the club, was left out again by Sir Alex Ferguson against Swansea City on Sunday and appears to have an uncertain future at the club.

He looks unlikely to play against West Brom next week and the outgoing United manager appears to have washed his hands of the Rooney problem, which has been brewing for months.

“I don’t think Wayne was keen to play, simply because he has asked for a transfer,” said the legendary United boss. “I think he should go away and think it over again.

“He wasn’t happy about being taken off a few times this season but a Wayne Rooney in top form wouldn’t be taken off.”

A summit meeting involving Ferguson, new boss David Moyes and Ryan Giggs is reported to have taken place yesterday when the striker’s future was discussed.

United have so far insisted the player is not for sale, but if they do back down and agree to let him go they will be after a fee in the region of £25million for the 27-year-old.

Reports claim Bayern Munich are out of the running and that could mean a straight battle between Arsenal and PSG for his signature.
