Paris Saint Germain Sporting Director Leonardo has revealed that the French club are admirers of Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney.
Rooney’s future at Old Trafford was in doubt last week after he was dropped from the starting XI for the huge Champions League Last 16 second leg defeat to Real Madrid at Old Trafford.
The former Everton striker was linked with a whole host of clubs for the summer with PSG heading the list alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has since played down the chances of Rooney leaving as the Red Devils inch closer to lifting the Premier League trophy once again this season.
Leonardo has been impressed with Rooney in recent seasons and claimed the striker is ‘one of the best in the world’.
The PSG Sporting Director did not rule out the possibility of the mega rich French club making a summer move for the 27 year old but PSG have plenty of options.
“Paris Saint Germain became a team who can buy all the players,” Leonardo told Sky Sports News.
“It is nice some big players, not only Rooney, they want to come to come. It is something we are happy with, not talking about Rooney.
“I think he is one of the best players in the world.”
