Wayne Rooney

After being dropped by Sir Alex Ferguson for Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid last week, Wayne Rooney’s future has been front-page news.

‘Wazza’ is reportedly surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, with Robin van Persie having stolen the spot on Fergie’s pedestal with his goalscoring exploits.

Reports suggest that he could be available for around £30m, and his signing would be a real statement of intent from Chelsea.

Equally able as a centre-forward or in a deeper role, his passion and enthusiasm would be an asset to the Blues, and could be just what they need to challenge for the Premier League title again.
